Microsoft Flow corrupts Excel file

Hi!

 

I have created very simple flow: to save Excel attachment in sharepoint folder on new email (please, see printscreen 1).

All Excel files saved are of typical structure, but among 200 files there is half of them which are corrupted.

When I am trying to open them Excel gives me error (please, see printscreen 2).

 

Kindly help me to understand what is the issue.

 

Best regards, Kateryna.

Re: Microsoft Flow corrupts Excel file

Hi @ koreluk,

 

Could you please share a full screenshot of the configuration of your flow which contain the details of each action?

 

The error message told that the file format or expression is not valid,waht have you filled in the "File Name" field of the "Create file"action? 

please take a try to create the flow as screenshot below:

Hello @v-yuazh-msft!

Thank you much for prompt response!

I will try to re-perform your Flow - it slightly differs, so perhaps that is the reason. Mine is also attached (printscree 1, 2 and 3).

Will test for few days and let you know if error still exists.

 

Thank you!

 

Best regards,

Re: Microsoft Flow corrupts Excel file

Hi, I'm trying to pull this off in my organisation too. But "Content" is not appearing in my Dynamic Content.  I just have "Current item" - referring to the current item of the for each loop.

 

But this is leading to corrupted Excel files - presumbably because this is not actually putting the Excel file contents into the files on SharePoint.

@RichardBoland 

Had the same issue here... "content" is not available one "current item" from the "apply to each" step... 

BUT... you can click on the grey "see more"... to see all available options... (picture inline..)

 

@MicrosoftTodd Maybe an idea to make the "see more" black instead of grey as it is really not clear at first sight.
