Moving .xlsx attachment to folder



I'm fairly new to Power Automate and am having trouble with a simple flow. I have an email sent to me every Monday morning with an .xlsx attachment on it. I've created a flow that takes that .xlsx attachment and moves it into a folder on my onedrive. The flow runs successfully, however when I try to open the .xlsx in my onedrive, I'm told it cannot be opened because the file format or file extension is not valid. See my flow below, is there an issue with moving .xlsx files?

Did you double check that the filename you are providing when you create the file has the .xlsx extension?  I've seen that be an issue in the past.  It looks like you are supplying your own name rather than using the one from the attachment.
