Can I gather files, set variables in Power Automate are they passed off to PAD?

Well thank you community as you have answered so many of my questions!  What a great resource.  

 

This is my question... now that I am getting into more sophisticated flows... If I get files in Power Automate and set variables, are these available to Power Automate Desktop?  Or do I need to use PAD to get the files set variables etc?  What I'd like to do is create a loop in power automate flow and then put the PAD automation in the Power Automate Loop... is that possible? Or am I thinking about it wrong were all of the automation should just be in PAD... thank you much as I venture into working with Power Automate and PAD together.

Yes you can define input/output variables between cloud and desktop flows. Please see this guide: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-automate/desktop-flows/link-pad-flow-portal
