Email Tool - Corrupted Attachment

7 - Meteor

Hello all,


I'm facing a problem with the email tool, mainly with the attachment option.

I need to attach a word document to send several emails, the problem is when I sent the emails the files are corrupted and people can't open it, I tried converting to pdf but no success and also I tried saving the files in One Drive but didn't work.




I'm curious because when I attached an excel file then the people receive the email with the attachment working correctly.

Below is a screenshot of the error, the file in my computer works well and I can open it without any problem so I don't know if it's something Alteryx does when sending the email:



Please let me know if you need more details and thanks for the help!

Hi ntobon,


I have read the whole topic and I have seen the bug related to colons but it does not apply in my case as there is only one recipient of the report, yet Alteryx still gives me the error.


Kind Regards,
