I have a Zap that is throwing an error “The app returned “Access Denied” when I try to upload images from my airtable record to a google drive folder.

It only happens when there are multiple images in the airtable field.

What do I need to do to correct this?

Hi @Keri2004 

Try using Looping to handle 1+ possible Airtable attachments into GDrive: https://zapier.com/apps/looping/integrations

This worked for me!!!
 

Instructions:

Tips (things I didn't understand but muddled my way through it)

1. Used Action "Create Loop from Text"

2. VALUES TO LOOP: Wrote the Airtable field name "Attachments URL"
Then mapped that field in the next form field, with my Airtable field.

3. Left text delimiter as a comma.

4. Then in my next Action, "Upload File in Google Drive" make sure to use the fields from the Create Loop From Text action for your File, not the original fields from your Airtable record.  This frustrated me up for a good 45 minutes, lol.
