Corrupted Excel File When Being Saved From Outlook

Hi,

 

I am trying to create a simple process to save all emails that come with attachments onto a specific folder on OneDrive. Every time this process works, it seems to create the file, but it is corrupt, and the file size becomes 1-3 KB. The original excel files that are being emailed are .xlsx. Am I doing anything wrong here?

Hi @Andrew17 ,

 

Please consider using the following configuration to first check if the type of the original file in the attachment is as expected.

It is also recommended that you check whether the attachment you added can be opened normally before testing.

Please take a try.

Hey @Andrew17 

 

Can you share details on what you are passing in the file content for the create file action? can you check if it is a base 64 string or something else? based on that you might have to change the config a little to make this work. 

 

Hope this Helps!

Hi @yashag2255,

 

The content in the files is just text. There are no special characters in it as well. Just to test it out, I set up to receive a .xlsx file with only the word "text" in a cell, and the same thing happened. Is this what you were asking?
