Power automate save .xlsx with error "Excel cannot be open the file 'filename.xlsx' because the file format or file extension is not valid"

Hi all,

 

I build several flows to save the attachments of scheduled emails (From Sap BO) to my OneDrive folder, most of them works well but one of them could save the documents successfully but I cannot open the file in my OneDrive. I searched this issue and someone suggested set the privacy level, but my laptop don't support that due to company safety policy. And the error message is: "Excel cannot be open the file 'filename.xlsx' because the file format or file extension is not valid "

 

My flow is super simple and it works for other files. And I tried to add extension after the file name but also got the same error message.

Thanks and regards,
