Trouble Opening Files attached to email

I created a flow that will retrieve attachments from an ITEM in a SharePoint list and attach them to an email. The flow runs successfully and the file appears as an attachment in the email with all the correct labels but when you try to open the file you get an error message that the files have been corrupted and cannot be opened. How do i get rid of this error message and actually open the attachments in the email?

Hi @Anonymous ,

 

You should choose the Attachment Content dynamic content in the Attachment content field.

Please refer to screenshot below:

Hi @Anonymous ,

 

You should use "Filename with extension" instead  of "Display name" in "Attachment Name". As email attachment require file extension too.

Do you mind sharing the top part of your flow? I don't have the option to add attachment content and I want to make sure I didn't build it incorrectly
