Add attachments to other list



I have a vehicle asset list and a vehicle inspection list. I have created a powerapp for an inspection, once the user completes the inspection, im attempting to add an attachment of the inspection back to the asset list. Here is my current flow. 



This flow is running correctly, however the file type that is being saved cannot be opened. I apologize for probably such an easy question but i am learning.


Thank You

One of the common issues in Flow when trying to save a file as an attachment is that people don't supply the file extension as part of the file name.  Without that the file can't be opened.  You also have to supply the actual binary file contents rather than a link to the item when saving the file.  What exactly are you trying to save as an attachment? The entries taht were made in the other list?  If so you'll need to create a file with those entries in order to get thefile contents to save it as an attachment.
