Email attachment not in excel format

Hi guys,

So I created a flow,
when a new form response is recorded, it will automatically update an excel file on One Drive and send it out to me as an excel attachment. Please see image below

The flow works fine and the email comes through, however its not showing up as an excel file. ( refer to below )

Bonus: I also want to only receive the newest entry as an excel file, not the full record.


Please help,
Thanks guys 🙂

Hi @JC__,

 

How about using the Get file content by path action?

Hi @JC__,

 

You could create a delay action set to 30 minutes between the Add a row into a table action and Get File content action. Then when you configure the send email action, the File name in the box should have an extension:
