Saving Excel file to SharePoint with time and date stamp

I receive a automated daily report that is named the same from the same sender. My goal is to save the file to SharePoint with the date and time it was received. I have followed the guide: Flow: Excel Formats Only | Save New Email Attachments to SharePoint - (alanps1.io)

 

When I get to the end I receive a set variable error. Correct to include a valid reference to 'Compse_FileExtension' for the input parameter(s) of action 'Set_variable'. Has anyone seen something similar? Thank you.

Hi @Bill51106,

 

In the instruction from Alan the expression was:

outputs('Compose_FileExtension')[1]

 

Did you use that? In your error I see a small difference. Is your action called Compse_FileExtension instead of Compose_FileExtension?

Hi @Bill51106 

 

Sounds like a typo.  Have you renamed an action after calling it further down your flow?  Like this Compse_FileExtension, missing an o in compose.

 

If this post helps, then please consider Accept it as the solution to help the other members find it more quickly.

@Expiscornovus great catch, that was a typo on my part typing it out though.

I try to copy / paste as much as possible, my hands jerk on occasion and this has caused issues!

I had a typo somewhere, not sure where. I recreated it.

 

It is now getting hung up on the 2nd step, Get email (V2) The specified object was not found in the store., The process failed to get the correct properties.

Hi @Bill51106 

 

It sounds like another typo to be honest. You could copy the expression into a compose action that runs prior to the send email action and then from the history you will be able to see what data is retrieved - if anything.

I am confused about the Get emails(V2) and V3. They appear to be only for shared mailboxes?

On the first step, on new email (webhook) it looks like that is no longer a valid option.  I selected When a new email arrives v3
