How to add a binary file to document library via workflow

Jump to solution

I have a binary file in a Documents folder which needs to be periodically updated from a copy that's available either from a URL, or a network path (UNC). I can't find any workflow actions that seem to facilitate this. My best guess is that I may be able to accomplish this using the web request action, but I really don't know.

You'd think this would be a fairly common task: grab a file from [here], and add it to this document library (overwriting if necessary).

Thanks!

Perhaps you could do this with a Windows Task following these steps:

-Configure your library to allow incoming emails, so your library will be set with binaryfiles@yourcompany.com

-Set a Windows Task to send your binary file on an email to binaryfiles@yourcompany.com

Fernando,

Thank you very much! This should work. I'd forgotten about this capability, not being a full-time Sharepoint guy, but I can create a Powershell script to pull the file and send it as an email.

Thanks again.

Ryk
