Re: Email Attachments in Flow

Ah, you might need to wrap the whole thing in quotes since it's expecting a string. eg. "InvoiceNumber.pdf".

 

As for the size of the document - how many documents are attached in that Sharepoint item? If it's a couple, since you are naming them all the same thing it might be trying to merge them in to one, hence the larger file size.

Re: Email Attachments in Flow

Using the quotes round the entie string, I got it to come through as a PDF!!

Any ideas on how to fix? I really appreciate the help

Re: Email Attachments in Flow

How many attachments are in the SP item?

Also, you may as well try and surround the content in quotes as well.

Re: Email Attachments in Flow

I realized I haven't answered your question for the last few posts. I am only attempting to upload and attach one document in the SP list.

 

Just tried to wrap the content in quotes as well and received the same damaged file note from the Adobe Reader.

Re: Email Attachments in Flow

Hm, I'm assuming you've tested this, but can you open the attachment from SharePoint just fine?

Yes, I can open it. It opens the PDF in the web browser that I'm in rather than in Adobe Document Reader, but I can view it no problem.

 

In fact, in my flow I've managed to successfully set up a hyperlink to open the PDF in this manner, but the department that I am sending the attachment to is requiring an actual attachment.

Re: Email Attachments in Flow

I think I'm out of ideas unfortunatly. Are the email attachment and SP attachment the same size?

Re: Email Attachments in Flow

Email attachment is around 25% bigger than the SP attachment.

Re: Email Attachments in Flow

Hmm, something is going on there then, it's clearly not getting the right attachment, or somehow the content is off.

Maybe test using the current name of the document? This is mine for reference:

Actual attachment values are:

{
  "Name": @{items('Loop_Through_Attachments')?['DisplayName']},
  "ContentBytes": @{body('Get_attachment_content')?['$content']}
}

Maybe post what you have in there as well?

Re: Email Attachments in Flow

is it possible to add multiple different attachments? 

One created with the append to array option. The other attachements are made in the flow with an create and get option
