getting a document to show up in an email

Hi, I'm trying to set up a flow where every time a document is edited, an email will be sent out with the content of that document in the body of the email.


I have the email going out as it should, but the content itself isn't showing. Instead of the information, all that's showing in the email is 'PK' followed by three squares.


What am I doing wrong here?


Thank you

Re: getting a document to show up in an email

Hi @Maxsmtn,


Could you please a screenshot of your issue?

I have reproduced the issue on my side, the file content would show up as a binary text in your body of email.


Analyzing binary text is not supported in Microsoft Flow currently, if you would like this feature to be added in Microsoft Flow, please submit an idea to Flow Ideas Forum:


Best regards,

Thank you for your reply. If it's not supported, I guess there's not much I can do
