Power Automate email Report as pdf

Hi

I have created a Power Bi Flow to email a pdf copy of my report in the service to a user.  The user gets the email with attachement and the message etc but when they click on the pdf document they get the message below.  Any ideas where I am going wrong?

Hi, @spandy34 

With the information you provided me, I created a Test on Power Automate and was able to see that the PDF uploaded successfully!

I think your problem may be due to the fact that the file may be sent as a file rather than a PDF, before sending the file, make sure that the file extension is set to ".pdf", if you want to know more, you can view this document: Solved: Email attachment is a 'file' and not a PDF - Power Platform Community (microsoft.com) If it still does not solve your problem, please provide me with more information.

I believe your best bet is to ask this on the Power Automate Community as there is likely a setting that needs to be changed or a different function used to provide the PDF. Microsoft Power Automate Community - Power Platform Community
