Moving Excel files from email to SharePoint list to SharePoint document library

Hi All,

 

I am currently trying to build a flow to move an excel attachment on an email to a SharePoint document library via a list. Sending the email to the SharePoint list seems to work OK and sending the attachment to the document library I thought was going OK until it appeared its now a *txt document and not an *xls file! Can you help?

 

Thanks,

Gary

If you post a picture of what you are currently doing that may help. I think the issue is the File Name and File Contect when you create the file in SharePoint.  I am going to asume you may be missing the "Get Attachment" action.  Talke a look at my screenshot and lot me know if that helps.

Hi, yes for some reason I can't add an attachment to the message?

 

Anyway, I've summarised as best as I can in text per below:

 

Add Attachment. Id = ID, File Name = Attachments Name, File Content = Attachments Content

Get Attachment content - Id = ID, File Identifier = Id

Create File - File Name = Subject, File Contect = Attachment Content.

 

Thanks, 

Gary

What is the "Add attachment" doing?

 

Is should just be what you see below.

Hi, its just coming through as a text file not an excel file, other than that it reaches the correct destinations in terms of from email to list to document library.

 

Thanks
