Get file content fails but not ALWAYS

Hi folks,


I made a flow where gets the file from sharepoint and attaches to an outlook email. The get file content fails(route did not match) sometimes and all I have to do is to edit the flow and select the file path (although it exist already) and then if I test it it works fine but maybe in a day or two it will fail and I have to do it again and again...

Any solution? or workaround? Any other get file content type to replace with sharepoint one?

Hi Futurist, 


I am not sure if you have selected the file path through the folder icon or if you tried to provide it dynamically, but if you are trying to reach a file through a dynamic folder path I would try with the "Get file content using path" instead of "Get file content". 


Here is an article explaining the difference between the two and the proper syntax a bit more in detail. 


Hope it helps
