Convert txt file from email attachment to pdf

Hi,

 

I'm looking to create a Flow that will take a txt file that is an attachment in an email, convert it to pdf and then save on an FTP.

 

Does anyone know how to do this?

 

Thanks!

Re: Convert txt file from email attachment to pdf

Try the following

 

Assuming you have the content of your attachment already.

Try the following actions:

Create File (OneDrive for Business) to store the file in onedrive

Convert file (OneDrive for Business) to convert the previously stored file to PDF

 

then use a ftp action to upload the pdf as required.

 

There are other PDF converters but they are usually subscription based

Hi @gm355 ,

 

As Gristy suggested, please refer to the following configuration, I use SharePoint to save the PDF file as an example:

Hey @gm355 @rich8rd @v-bacao-msft @Gristy 

I just ran a few tests on this as well... TXT file conversion fails via the OneDrive connector.

Same files convert fine via third party connectors such as the Encodian connector - Convert Text to PDF

See details below:

Re: Convert txt file from email attachment to pdf

Hi Guys, create a text file in .html format then convert to pdf is currently supported (while txt to pdf is not supported according microsoft premier supported). So the below is working for me. I think this presents a valid and easy workaround as creating a html is just a matter of wrapping your txt file with <html> and <body> tag with some <br> sprinkled around.
