Hi @MarcinGal ,

 

There is Attachment column next to HasAttachments containing a table of attachments. You can create a custom column to count how many rows each table has.

Table.CountRows([Attachment])

You may need to expand the table if you're looking for a specific file type or you can filter each table prior to counting the rows

let 
filteredtable = Table.SelectRows([Attachments], each [Extension] = ".xlsx" and [IsInline] = false )
in Table.RowCount(filteredtable)
//IsInline = TRUE means they are what you see on an email like a company logi or a custom image signature (if I am right) so filter this to false
//PQ recognizes false and not FALSE as the opposite of true
//PQ is case-sensitive

Each email has its own ID so you'll know which count is for

Thank you so much for your help! The only issue i encountered was that not in all cases there was a [IsInline] field. After removing it from function it works perfectly 😄

Hi @MarcinGal ,

 

You can use try ... otherwise ... to handle errors.

let 
filteredtable1 = Table.SelectRows([Attachments], each [Extension] = ".xlsx" and [IsInline] = false ),
filteredtable2 = Table.SelectRows([Attachments], each [Extension] = ".xlsx" )
in Table.RowCount(try filtertable1 otherwise filteredtable2)
