change name of attachment being sent with email

Hello, I need to change the name of an attachment being sent with an email. I have an image URL uploaded to OneDrive that is saved as a pdf file. The attachment name is now a long string that doesn't provide any meaning for the end users that will receive the email. I have a field "Pro Number" from an excel online source that I'd like to rename the attachment name to. However, when I change the dynamic content for the attachment name I get an error: Attachment content cannot be null or empty

Hi @amcneil32 :

The file name needs to include the suffix of the file type, such as'. pdf','.txt'

Hi @amcneil32 :

Just try to set the Attachments Name property to "FileName.pdf", and check if the problem solved.

@v-bofeng-msft , thanks for the response. When i use "File content" from the "get file content" action on both the attachment name and content property the email is sent out with the attachment successfully. If i use any name output from the "upload file from URL" action i get the error below. I dont understand why this would cause the content of the attachment to be null
