Send Email with flow

Hi there, 

I am trying to send an email with flow, in this email i want to attach a document from onedrive. Now i can get it to do this, it sends me the email with the excel file, however, when i try to open the excel file it says that "this file is corrupted, and is unable to open". It is a regular xlsx file, the only thing about it is that it has a pivot table in it, is this really the reason for this, can you not work with pivot tables in flow, or am I simply doing something wrong in my flow? 🙂

Hi, 

 

Check if the attachment name contains the file extension.

Re: Send Email with flow

Hi there @TCH .

 

I have just tested this by recreating your Flow and my pivot table has sent without issue on the .xlsx.

I see you are using display name (visningsnavn), you would need to make sure .xlsx is part of the file name I expect.

 

If you have found my post helpful, please mark thumbs up.

Any other questions, just ask.

Thanks, Alan
