In Flow, I am able to selectively pull certain columns from the list, put them into a file, attach to an email, and then send the email. But when I click on the attachment it won't open in Excel. If I try to "Save As" and then open with Excel, it puts all columns into the "A" column on each row. But... if I add ".csv" when doing the "Save As" and double-click the saved file, it will open correctly in Excel.

I want to add the file extension .csv automatically rather than manually at the "Save As".

Any ideas?

Here's a rough look at the Flow steps:
