Error Message



Can anyone help me with the error message below please? I am trying to generate a word document.


The dynamic operation request to API 'wordonlinebusiness' operation 'GetFileSchema' failed with status code 'BadRequest'. This may indicate invalid input parameters. Error response: { "status": 400, "message": "The selected file doesn't contain template elements. clientRequestId: 891ae9fa-be46-4f7b-a9c4-07c67ea8628a", "error": { "message": "The selected file doesn't contain template elements." }, "source": "" }

Hey @Sn0white 


Please review - 


I am pasting the response below for your reference 


After careful step by step analysis of what was causing the issue for me I discovered that hyperlinks in the text of the document were the cause. Apparently the parser used in PowerAutomate Flows cannot deal with hyperlinks anywhere in the document and crash causing the error.   I remove the "link" in the link text and it read the file fine and found the text fields.
