File created is corrupt

Hi, I am building a flow for controlled documents. I have a SharePoint list where the user uploads a draft document with metadata and then an appoval workflow. Once the document has been approved, the flow creates the file in the Document Library and then updates the file with the metadata. It is all working fine except I get an error, "Sorry, this document can't be opened for editing" and when I open in Word I get the error "Word found unreadable content in the ....doc name.... Do you wan to recover the contents of the document?". Every file gives the same error, Word, Excel, PDF, the only one that I could open was a 1 line text file.

 

I Think I need to do soemthing like HaiderShah1 post https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/Using-Flows/MS-Flow-corrupts-file/td-p/249659 but I'm a novice at SharePoint and have tied myself in knots trying to figure out the string for the base64ToBinary function. Could you please help

 

Update, I have added

 

base64ToBinary(body('Get_attachment_content')?['$content'])
 
to the Create File but the file is still corrupt 
 
Update #2
 
It would appear that I had some white space before base64ToBinary(body('Get_attachment_content')?['$content'])
I have removed the white space and the files no longer corrupt (but only a sample size of 2)

Thanks

base64ToBinary(triggerBody()?['documentbody'])

Hi @Jim_W ,

 

Please try to use base64ToBinary(body('Get_attachment_content')).

Hi @v-bacao-msft 

 

Thanks for the suggestion, but I received an error. I think I am on the right track with my update but may have to use an array with $content-type
