Word Online (Business) (Preview) Convert Word Document to PDF

I am trying this connector using sharepoint library . It is a simple .docx file with 2 lines of text.  I get this error.

The rest of the flow which reads the file and sends email notification works fine, throws an error at this Action.

Hi @MS4

Try this as it has worked for me.Capture-093.png

If you need to change the trigger, by all means do. A simple press of a button has worked for testing purposes.

 

Hope this helps!

Hey

 

No it did not - i basically had it configured the same as mentioned.

This errors with the same error as the OP.

 

In my scenario FILE would be set as Identifier in the production flow - which is sourced from the trigger i.e. document created.

Hi @Gristy ... hhhmmmm.

Can you post your whole Flow please in an image as I have?

Please see below:

As you will see, I just creted this and I have an accurate PDF that opens with same data as PDF.

Maybe you could quickly recreate from scratch as a test?

Sure thing here you go:

 

I am not dumping it out anywhere yet as it doesnt get past that step.

Hi @Gristy

You haven't posted an image of your Flow and I can see you have just one connection, that indicates you are only using "Convert Word Document to PDF Connector" after triggering with a button.

You will notice that connector doesn't offer to save the file anywhere hence why I have used in addition, "Create File" to either SharePoint or OneDrive maybe and this done the trick for me. No Output with it, granted I got no error at that stage though.

 

If you recreate like mine exactly it will work I am sure. Can you try it?

 

Here is also a helpful video recently posted by a SuperUser on the Word connectors as they are new.

I have done so - same error unfrotuantely.

 

Good that is working on your tenant, hopefully they fix it for other tenants soon.

I do not think this is a problem with how our flows are configured but rather something bugged in the flow platform here.

Hi @Gristy

Thanks for doing that, you may have found a bug and if you think you have please post here.

One last question though ...

Your last image shows this

 Capture-098.png

Are you clicking test to run this or are you clicking the button on your phone in the flow app?

Thanks, Alan

Re: Word Online (Business) (Preview) Convert Word Document to PDF

Hi @Gristy & @MS4

I am working through this just now and I am getting errors too where they shouldn't be and it won't load my dynamic fields in the "Populate a Microsoft Word template".

So, not the same issue as you are experiencng, but there are only 2 Word connectors and 1 isn't working for you both, and 1 not working for me. The connectors are still in preview though really. So, just thought I'd let you know that.

I will wait till tomorrow and if my Flow still won't work I'll be posting my issue as a bug in the bug threads.

Thanks, Alan

I am having the same issue as well.

 

I was looking in the documentation to see if there was anything, but haven't been able to get it to work either. I get the same error. I also tried different Word docx types, and even looked to see if I needed to add a schema to the document, but no dice.

Re: Word Online (Business) (Preview) Convert Word Document to PDF

I linked a video earlier where John L mentions it is still buggy in SharePoint and easier to get to work in OneDrive. I have it working on one tenant and not in another using SharePoint. It’s clearly a bug. Please post in bug threads. Details posted earlier in thread.
