Re: Create File Excel .xlsx

Hi @MaldiniAP 


To create a file, the action expects the file content in the last attribute of the action. I can see that you mentioned simple text "Prueba" that is not accepted for excel files. The content should be a base64 content type for the excel or else it will give you the formatting error or corrupt file error. If you can share details on scenario you are trying to build, we might be able to assist you better. 


Hope this helps!
