Sharepoint Create File returns Error in Application intermittently

I've made a flow to take responses from a Microsoft Forms, populate a word template and then create a PDF (mostly following along with Microsoft Power Automate Tutorial - Microsoft Word Connector ). The struggle I'm having is that maybe 1 in 100 will fail on the Sharepoint 'Create file' step with a status code of 400 and an error message that says "Error in the application. clientRequestId: ad2b5965-41c5-4c8e-938d-56f81ec2eb42 serviceRequestId: ad2b5965-41c5-4c8e-938d-56f81ec2eb42" Has anyone else ran across this and found any success in fixing it?FlowIssue.jpg

Hi @BegeNCSU,

 

Is there any difference between creating a failed file and other files? Is it possible that the data populated exceeds the size of the PDF file that was created? You can try to create a single Flow, that will create a successful word file, but failed to create a PDF file, and create it separately to see if it will succeed.
If successful, you can add an additional create file in SP action to the original Flow to prevent the previous creation from failing.
