Sending a docx sharepoint document as email body

Hi everyone,


I have a .docx file located in a Sharepoint folder. I would like to send the content of this file within the body of an email.


I am able to get the file content, but if you just push it to the email body, you get the "raw" docx data. What I want is the equivalent of copy-pasting the content of the file to the email body.


How can I do that?

Hi @Lionel1,


Could you please share a screenshot of your flow's configuration?

Do you get the binary data within your email body?

Further, do you want to get the actual content of the .docx file rather than the binary data within the email body?


I afraid that there is no way to achieve your needs in Microsoft Flow currently. There is no way to analyze the binary data in Microsoft Flow currently, if you would like this feature to be added in Microsoft Flow, please submit an idea to Flow Ideas Forum:


Best regards,
