Saving email to FTP

I'm trying to create a simple Flow where I save an email onto an FTP when it gets flagged.

 

It works when I use MessageID as the File name, but the file name is long and cumbersome.

 

When I try to use Subject as the File name I get an error. I also tried setting a variable FileName and assigning the Subject to the variable, but got the same error.

 

Can anyone help please?

 

Thanks.

Hi @gm355 ,

 

What is the Subject of the email?

Does the Subject have some special synbol in it?

Please take a try to name the file with a special string to see if the flow could work.

 

Best regards,

Alice

Re: Saving email to FTP

The subject of the email follows this format:

 

example: EXAMPLE, INC. DEAL 45MM 20160907 - Example

 

So it has semi-colon, comma, period and dash.

 

I ran some tests and it seems like it's the semi-colon that is causing the problem (how random)

 

So I need some code to remove the semi-colon.

 

Thanks for you help!
