Save Excel Attachment to Sharepoint - Not working

Hello,  

 

My flow is designed to save an Excel file to a Sharepoint folder.  The email is in attachment to an email that automatically gets routed to an inbox folder that Flow monitors.  I want to be able to save the Excel file (only file in attachment of each email) to Sharepoint.  Based on the subject of the email, a folder will be chosen to save to.  All of this is working as designed.  The problem I am having is the file that is saved...  It isn't in any type of Excel format and thusly, I am unable to open it.  See below:

Above I am attempting to save the attachment and name it the date/time it was received.  Below is the email that is received...you can see an .XLS in attachment.

Here is my flow:

And Zoomed in on the File Save portion.

Why is this failing to save an .XLS file and rather a link to a pop up that wants to save a file of unidentifiable format?

 

Thanks!!!

Matthew

Hi @KEMETman,

 

Because you didn't add the file extension at the end of file name, please add it and try it again:
