I have a Power Automate Flow and it will update file properties for Excel and Word but not for PDF files. I have tried everything and still nothing. I saw a post, but the thoughts there did not solve problem either. Anyone else have this issue? Please list step by step on how to resolve this issue.
Please see below. We Get file content, then Create file and the Excel and Word properties in SharePoint Online update, but whenever it's a pdf file the file gets created in SharePoint Online, but none of the file properties are updated. I have tried update properties after create file, but that did not work either. I find it strange that Excel and Word works, but pdf file does not. I have researched and tried delays and that did not work. I'm at a loss any help is appreciated. Thanks!
Which properties are you expecting to be updated? Is there more to the flow - actions that should be making those properties change? I'm not sure I understand the exact problem.
Copying one file from a Library in SharePoint Online to another Library. The actions that make the property updates is the create file so it brings over the file and the following data for Excel and Word. This is the SharePoint List and it carries over the file to the Name, but the Responsible Party, Witness and Atty it does not bring those properties over for a pdf file, but does on Excel and Word file. That is my issue.
