Microsoft word

Hello

I wanted to extract the contents of Microsoft word file from sharepoint folder and wanted to paste that content in email body.

 

How to do that?

Hi @Anonymous,

 

It seems that it currently is not possible to take the contents of a word document and paste them into the body of an email at this time using Microsoft Flow.  I found this post from another user that had a similar issue where a community support member responded.

They also mentioned a possible workaround where you save the document as a text file instead of as a word document and pull the contents from that, but I haven't tested it yet, so I don't know if it works.

 

Hope that helps!

Hi @Anonymous ,

 

The Word file content obtained in Flow is not plain text, they have been encoded, and currently cannot be transcoded through Flow.

If you want such a file to be read as plain text in Flow, please consider voting for the similar idea below:
