Docx file generated was corrupt from connect file



Docx file generated was corrupt from connect file.

Error Messages

No error message but unable to open file as it is corrupted.

Steps to Reproduce

Generate a docx file from an xml stream using connect file.

Root Cause

XML stream was reconverted to string using base64 decode. String may not have capability to store all content of binary docs.


Use "Write from eForm" where in byte stream can directly be used to be processed by connect file rule.
