E-mail Content to SharePoint



I'm a bit of a newbie with Flow and I've run into a problem, which I hope you can help with.


I want to get the content of e-mails sent to a specific account that have attachments copied into SharePoint.  I want the attachment(s) saved, plus the sender's address, subject text and body text saved.  I don't care if the save location is a SharePoint document library with attributes of if it's a List with an attachment.


I'm using the template below to create a SharePoint and can currently create a file


I can manipulate the filename by concatenating fields pulled in from the e-mail, but I can't populate the other fields that I've created in SharePoint - From, Subject, Body.  If I could link the initial Flow Action  - Create File - to a subsequent Action - update the SharePoint record that's just been created - I'm there.  I feel that this should be simple but can't find the field that is common to both actions, i.e. the Update action does not know what it is updating so fails.


Any help gratefully received.


I previosuly posted this here, but with detail and imploring 🙂

Thanks for the response Mabel.


Actually I'd tried that previously and got the same error.

I wonder if there is something wrong with the initial template.  Why is it that when I create a template from blank that has the same actions that I can't even create a file...
