Yes I can understand. But first step is to get the attachment path from the list item.

Once you get that, you can download the file from SharePoint using the SharePoint activities.

As all the attachments are stored in the SharePoint repo.

Hope this helps.

Hey @santhosh.k0514

Also, you can try using the REST API for the same but it will be a bit complicated compared to the activities way of doing it.

Thanks, I will try it out, but when I tried listitem.fields(attachment column index) I’m getting only attachment true or false, can you help me to find the path of listitem attachment or how to convert listitem to driveitem I can download

Sure @santhosh.k0514

But since I don’t have an accessible environment for SharePoint I’m unable to explore much.

If you can please share some screenshots will be easy to troubleshoot.

Thanks

Yes @santhosh.k0514

You are halfway through.

As we discussed, the list attachments are stored in SharePoint so now we need to get that path…

Hi @santhosh.k0514 ,

Did you managed to get SharePoint list’s attachments download somehow? I am also having trouble on this. Any help will be wonderful! Thanks!
