email an onedrive file that matches a Form field

Hi everyone, sry for my english. Actually im very exciting about learning the many process that I can automate with Power Automate.


Now im trying so hard to solve this problem:


I have a Form created. In this form there is a field named "Company's name". In the other hand, I've created a onedrive folder and there are many files. I am trying to retrieve the file that has the same name as the "Company's name" field and once the file is retrieved, then send the file attached by e-mail (outlook).


Is this possible?


Thanks in advance

Hey @JamesAR1988 


Think your problem has been asked before


Basically, use the Find files in Folder action to do your search.


Next, take a look at this sample flow


which shows a file in OneDrive via email

Hi LinkeD365, thanks for your answer.


I've tried these solutions but don't know how to connect both.


For example: Using this action:

I can find the file using as a query the response obtained from a specific field of my Form, but later... how can i recover the content of this file and send it by email? If hay use this trigger instead of an another action, my flow doesn't work (it appears a timeout message)


So, my question is.. How do i combine the Action (Find Files) and then the Trigger (When File is created) in order to achieve send the file by e-mail?


By the way, my very first Trigger (Microsoft Form type) is: "When a new response is submitted -> Get response details"


Thanks in advance!!!
