Power Apps Data Source -- > Email not working properly


I'm using powerapps and excel to submit a form. When I submit this form, i want an email to be sent containing the excel spreadsheet connected to it. I have set up a flow to do this



For some reason, when i receive the email with this file, i cannot see the contents that i have just submitted through the form.

When i go onto the file i can see the data appears, it's just not getting the latest version of the file in the flow. I've tried adding delays before getting the file content but that makes no difference. Having “When a file is modified” works but if I try to submit the form twice in a short space of time so I’m not looking to use the trigger. Does anyone know if there is there a way to fix this?

Hi @ahammond02 ,

Is your file stored in SharePoint or OneDrive?

Will be able to help you better based on Storage.


May be you can tried with Get FIle Content Action.

Hi @Amol-Kavnekar ,


I’ve tried this and it didn’t work unfortunately so instead I made each of the input values into variables once the form was submitted and used them as parameters for a power automate flow, using the power apps trigger to feed information in.
