Get File Content Using Path - Null Content?

Hello, 

 

I thought I had this working at one point but just tried to test it and I can't seem to see what I am getting wrong. Did I miss something? I Keep getting cannot be null content error message. (Parameter 'Attachment Content' cannot be null or empty.)

Click [Next faild] to find the failed email sending action.
And how many emails with attachments have been received. Then find out which file is not attached.

 

There are 3 files in the document library, and if all are successful, the mail will be sent 3 times.
If it fails all three times, I think there is a problem with the flow, but looking at the posted image, the first file seems to have been successfully attached to an email.

 

Since there are both successful and unsuccessful actions in Apply to each, I think it's not a flow problem, but a problem with the file you're dealing with.
Delete the failing file from the document library and try the flow again.
So if you don't get the error, there is a problem with the deleted file.

I think it will succeed if you set [File Path] in the [Get file content using path] action to [FullPath] instead of [Link to item].

I used google translate.

I tried that but received same error message.

Is the source of this trigger a document library? Or is it her list in SharePoint?

If it's a document library, try testing a simple flow with a manual trigger like this: In my environment, I was able to attach the document library file to an email and send it without any errors.

If it is a list, you need to get the contents of the attachment using two actions as below.

Everything worked out. Sorry about that. 

 

I was testing the flow using an old trigger of a file that was already deleted. 😓
