Re: Unable to send file content in json form from dropbox to Google Sheet

Hi @Harmanpreet,

 

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

Do you want to insert the file content of the uploaded file in your Dropbox folder into a column in your Google Sheet?

Further, do you type the File Content dynamic content from the trigger into the FileContent field of your "Insert row" action?

 

The issue is confirmed on my side, The File Content dynamic content your trigger returned is a binary data (Starts with 'PK'), if you type the File Content dynamic content from the trigger into the FileContent field of your "Insert row" action, the issue would show up as you mentioned.

 

I have created a Google Sheet on my side and the data structure of it as below:14.JPG

 

I have made a test on my side and please take a try with the following workaround:13.JPG

The FileContent field set to following formula:

triggerBody()?['$content']

 

The flow works successfully as below:15.JPG

Best regards,

Kris
