If you forward it to yourself can you open it?  What Version of IOS? Using the Apple Mail Client?

File attachments routed through certain versions of Exchange and Office365 are not properly recognised by the Mail application on iOS.

If you were dealing with hosted exchange or in-house Exchange server there may be some settings you could change but seeing as you're dealing with Office365 service you have very limited control.

You may not want to hear my suggestion but the options are to either try another email client on the iPhone or else set up some rules on the Office365 mail server account to forward the email to another email account like GMAIL and then either setup Gmail on your phone or have Gmail forward the email back to the Inbox on Office365.  Either of these 2 routes should fix the attachment issue.
