Hi @ct2034 

Please post screenshots with how your Zap steps are configured.

FYI: Providing the Zap Share link doesn’t allow us to see how your Zap steps are configured.

I believe the GDrive action for Create File from Text will either create a .txt file or an editable GDoc file.

I don’t think you can specify a different file type in the File Name field.
