How to send a Word Document as an email attachment?

Hi, I am trying to create  a Flow in where a Word document is populated to later send it on a email as an attachment but whenever I put the file in the attachment, I get such an Email (not the content that is inside the Word Document):

This is how my Flow is looking right now:

How can I solve this problem? Thanks

Hi thanks for the help and sorry for the delay in my reply, I noticed I had some errors in the connectors I had used and decided to use the SharePoint connectors to get the document I needed and it worked perfectly! Thanks

Hi there, 


Can we see how your attachment is configured in the Send An Email action? Is it using File Content and File Name? Where is the Word Document stored? What is the intent of the "Compose" action for the Word file? 

I have a feeling that after your Word template is populated, you will need to use a "Get File" action and get the file content and name, and attach that to your email ... but like I say, need to see some details first 🙂
