Populate sharepoin document library metadata

Hi All

New to power automate and looking for guidance.

I have a SharePoint document library with the filename and a documentid as the basic metadata that I would like to populate with documents from a file share.


Each document is listed in an index.txt that contains the documentid and filename. As I import the files to SharePoint, I would like to be able to read the index.txt and populate the two columns in the SharePoint library for the document.


Many thanks in advance.

Here is a template that is an organize into folders flow. Organizing with metadata is a little different, and possibly more complicated. But I hope to make some strides on a similar flow this week. Any ideas for a general approach using an index text file with delimiters indicating fields/values to populate Sharepoint metadata? What is your delmiter, @horank ? How is the index file structured? If you have gotten far on this idea, do you care to share a general approach for this flow? I'm struggling myself.
