Convert XLS to XLSX failed


I have been trying to create a flow to convert an email attachment which is in XLS format to an XLSX format and automatically save that to a Sharepoint list. The flow was working except for the convertion part. When running the flow I get the following error:

"request": {
"url": null,
"traceId": "0HLV257H62LQK5975bef3682"
"error": {
"code": "ApplicationResultException",
"message": "Cannot open the document, invalid type of file.",
"date": "2020-04-17T07:17:07.1240452Z"

When I manually convert the document from XLS to XLSX I always get the following notification:

However, when clicking yes I am always able to open the document and convert the format of the file.
I figured this might be the reason the flow is currently not working.

Can anybody advise me on how to get my flow to work?

Hi @cmav2611,

Could you share the source file and I'll try to reproduce the issue on my side?

Hi @Petr

I added a test file which does not include the exact data but is of the exact same format.

Kind regards,

Hi @cmax2611,

Indeed, the file seems to be corrupted, ot rather it's an XML file with xls extension. The file won't work with the action. I also double checked that an xls file is converted just ok. Please try o re-create the document and try to convert it again.
