Problems uploading a file from Airtable to Google Drive with Integromat


I’m trying to import a file doc file that exists in an airtable attachment field into Google Drive in integromat.

So it actually creates a file, by the name that I have assigned. But when you open it, here’s what it looks like:

You’ll notice first that it doesn’t open in editor. And what you are able to make out of the text is the address of the file in airtable (according to airtable).

As far as the setup in Integromat, here’s what the settings look like:

Attachments are stored as a URL in Airtable, so your Integromat setup is currently only sending the URL onto Google Drive, not the actual attachment file itself.

In Integromat, you need to add an additional module to convert the URL into an actual file.

That would be the “HTTP” module, and you would choose the “Get A File” function. (See screenshot below.)

Then, you would send the results of THAT module onto Google Drive.

p.s. If you have a budget for your project and need to hire an expert Airtable/Integromat developer to help you with any advanced Integromat automations, please feel free to send me a private message! :slight_smile:
