Hello,

The parent id here is the item ID of the parent folder in which the file needs to be created in.

Hi there,

Thanks for your reply. But which block can I use prior to the 'Create Binary File' block which will give me an output of parent ID?

Hello,

I didnt dabble much with this connector.

But you can try and test the following:

1. since you have the site id maybe use the block:  "List Drives From Site"

A drive is a The top-level object that represents a user's OneDrive or a document library in SharePoint.

You can choose the the driver id that you need

2. then with the driver id use the block:  "List Items On Drive"

Which will give you a list of folders, files that are present on the driver, i would guess that some of these folder objects can act as the parent id to where you can upload your file to.

Please note there might be a better way to do this.
