"Populate a Word Template" connector error "'\b', hexadecimal value 0x08, is an invalid character."

Hello Everyone,


I'm facing a problem using the "Populate a Word Template" connector in Power Automate with Chinese language.


Our Power App is gathering Information from the Baidu Search engine and is creating a report out auf the results.


It seems that there are hidden Characters in the text string from Baidu.


The Error Message says:


The Error msg says: "message": "BadGateway",

"innerError": {

"status": 500,

"message": "'\b', hexadecimal value 0x08, is an invalid character.\r\nclientRequestId: dc1ec611-2b9e-495c-9884-3d92f5b8dd6c",

"error": {

"message": "'\b', hexadecimal value 0x08, is an invalid character."


I already tried to replace() the Characters '\b' from the String before using the "Populate a word Template" connector but it is not changing anything.


Do you have any idea what else I could try do solve this?

The app is already working with 50+ languages but only with Chinese I'm getting this kind of errors.
