Loading CSV files from SharePoint - has something changed?

Hi all,


A flow that had been working fine up until today has started to malfunction, with no other changes.


Essentially, the flow loaded a .csv file from a Document Library with "Get file content (SharePoint)" and then processed the content.


Before today, the action produced an output like:



Today, the action is producing output like:



If I change the file extension of the .csv to .txt, it correctly loads it as text and can be processed.


Has this action behaviour updated? Is this behaviour expected?


Many thanks,

Hi @DavidTansley,


Could you share a screenshot of you flow? How is it created?

As you mentioned, the return result of Get file content is something likes below:


However, it works as expected. In the following action Create file, input the dynamic content File content in the field File content to create the file in another library, which works fine.

Please check the following screenshot for a reference:



Best regards,
