Unable to open password protected excel from sharepoint

Hello,

 

I have created a flow to store email attachments (excel) in the SharePoint library. While opening those files I am getting an error as shown in the screenshot.

According to some forums, it is because of password-protected files. But as files are coming from clients there is no way we could ask for passwords. Is there any way to fix this? 

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks & Regards,

S

Hi @Anonymous 

 

It's a tricky issue indeed, but if the file is password-protected, Power Automate isn't going to be able to open it. Otherwise, it would be a security risk.

 

If I'm not understanding something, please let me know, so that I can help you.

Re: Unable to open password protected excel from sharepoint

Hello Manuel,

 

PowerAutomate is working fine by storing the attachment in the desired location (Sharepoint Library) but users should be able to open it when needed. 

When files are stored manually in Sharepoint, we could open-edit them without any issues. 

 

 

I am adding screenshots of my flow If it helps in understanding the issue.
