Pasting attachment into Approval Email

Hi all,


I am wanting to build two flows. My primary flow creates an approval from a Forms submission and in the email approval, the attachment can be seen so the approvers can view the file. I had this working smoothly until I built my second flow which updates the sharepoint list with the data from the forms submissions as well. Now when I run the flow, i receive this.



Any help here?

Hello @dsteveHW ,

based on the error message there’s either no attachment to the form, or you don’t use the right dynamic content as the attachment name as it’s empty.

Hi @dsteveHW,

Here is my edited reply.


Do you want to send an approval email with attachments?

Could you please show me more about your flow?

I assume you want to write attachment into SharePoint and have a test on my side. Please try the following workaround.





Best Regards,
