Send email with pdf attachment of HTML text

Hello Team,


I am using flow for my application in powerapps to send an email with attachment to the user. I am getting following error in workflow:

Send email error.PNG



























Here's my flow:

And here's my formula in powerapps:

TimeSheet_Week16.Run(Office365Users.MyProfile().Mail,Month_Year,"Hello,Please find attached for monthly timesheet. Thanks,",HtmlText1.HtmlText,Month_Year)


Can someone help me on this please?


Kind regards,

Hi Nagaviswanath,


I guess that you are getting the Attachment Content from a PDF viewer control. I can reproduce the error message when I try to get the Attachment Content from a PDF viewer.


If I configure the function as 'manual->Sendanemail'.Run(Office365Users.MyProfile().Mail,"subject","HelloEmailBody","test",PdfViewer1.CurrentFindText). I would get the following error message when I run the flow.


I am afraid that the context from PDF viewer has not been supported yet.



While if I configure the function as 'manual->Sendanemail'.Run(Office365Users.MyProfile().Mail,"subject","HelloEmailBody","test",HtmlText1.HtmlText). The flow would run succeed but seems that flow cannot validate the content from the HTML URL.



What’s the Month_Year in your code?

Hello @v-yamao-msft


Month_year is the value of the TextBox used in my application.

Can you let me know how to write basic code to write the contents of the attachment. And also would you please let me know how to set the file extension of the attachment like PDF or XLSX etc?


Kind regards,



Hello @v-yamao-msft


I am using the HTML text to get into Attachment to send email. Here's my formula:

TimeSheet_Application.Run(Office365Users.MyProfile().Mail,Month_Year,"Hello,Please find attached for monthly timesheet. Thanks,",Month_Year,HtmlText1.HtmlText)


Kind regards,
