Using a PDF as the body of an email

Highlighted
7 - Meteor

I am trying to use a PDF as the body of my email. I am pulling this file and another PDF as an attachment from a folder as using the directory input to read the files.

 

The PDF attachment works just fine using the file path as a reference, but when i try to do the same with body of the email it just reads the file path and uses that as the body instead of the PDF file.

Hey @RMotiwalla,

 

I wonder if the following post could not help you in your challenge: https://community.alteryx.com/t5/Product-Resources/TRAINING-Workflows-that-read-data-from-PDF-files/...

 

The idea is to extract the content of the PDF and use it for the body of the email.

 

Kind regards,
