Open in client application

Here are details.
I would like to open file which is attached from share point list in client application.
Client application means software installed each computer such as excel or word.
My situation: if I click file, it start to download file. I don't want to download it, just open in client application. Or opening in online such as excel online is also ok.
Please help me and tell how to set in power apps.

Hi @tsunatsuna ,


OK, the above workaround seem not to work in PowerApps forms of SP, because if form mode is view, no interactive can be done, and also it only support editform. so let's change to add the list box out of the form!

Reduce the size of the form and create a listbox under the form, set the list box items property to SharePointIntegration.Selected.Attachments . So whatever the mode of form is , the list box can always be selected. Just keep the previous steps and have a try.

Best regards,


@v-siky-msft thank you

Do you mean like this attached picture?

there are nothing to display the attached file.

Hi @tsunatsuna ,


Yes, please first to check if your item contains attachments.

Please see my test:


Best regards,



thank you for answering, but I checked attached file.

here are my procedures;

 1.SharePointIntegration>Advanced>action Onnew:NewForm(form) Onedit:EditForm(form) Onview:ViewForm(form)

    2.I insert ListBox under screen, not under form.

    3. I set Item=SharePointIntegration.Selected.Attachments

    4.I set OnSelect=Launch(ListBox1_1.Selected.AbsoluteUri & "?web=1")


But I cant see file and click it.

Could you tell me how to solve this?

Hi @tsunatsuna ,


All the steps seemed perfect.

I suggest you to try in another list to check if it works. Or just delete your current custom form and re-create one. It can be deleted from List settting ➡ Form setting Delete custom form.

Best regards,
