Sharepoint Item is Modified Can't See File Content To Save Attachment Using File System



I've created a flow that whenever a Sharepoint List item is modified (simple yes/no column) the flow then tries to save the attachment to my desktop. 

However, when I'm populating the field for the File System action Create File, in the File Content field I cannot find a dynamic field that I can put in that will save the file. 



Any help would be appreciated.

Re: Sharepoint Item is Modified Can't See File Content To Save Attachment Using File System

Hi Lkrishna,


I am afraid that attachment in SharePoint list has not been supported yet.

To test this issue, I also create a flow to try to get the attachment saved in a list. But there is no dynamic content can be used to get the attachment content in the list.

I have seen similar request at Flow Ideas Forum, please consider to vote and comment the idea at here. The status of the ideas has been changed to Planned. I assume that PGs will be working on it and it will be available in the future releases:


Best regards,
