I use power automate to create a File in Sharepoint folder when I add an item to a Sharepoint list. File is attachet of list, the problem is that file in Sharepoint folder doesn't have a format visible, to open file I have to know what is the original format. How can I resolve this problem?

When you create the file are you including the extension in the file name? If you create an image, for example, and set the file name as "image" SharePoint will not know this is an image file. However, if you set the file name as "image.png", it will identify this as a png file and should display correctly.

 

It is the same functionality if you are creating files using the one drive or blob storage connectors too.

thank you, I solved this problem, but there is another problem, I would that when I create a new item in the list Sharepoint (whit power automate)  create a new folder and create a new file in this folder. The problem is that when i create file and  insert path of new folder whit dynamic content then the test is accomplished, but i don't find file.

Excellent Glad to be of help.

If you can tick the post a solution, it would be very much appreciated.

I would start a new thread for your second issue and upload some screenshots of what your flow is doing. I will try to help you with that too.
