None of this is actually grammatically incorrect. None of them feels quite natural. I have occasion to send files of code with some frequency, and I would not write any of these in a business (or personal) email. I would be inclined to write:

  • Please find attached a file containing code.
  • Attached is a file containing code.
  • Attached is a file with the code. (Assuming other context had identified the code specifically.)
  • Please find attached a file containing the code. (Same assumption.)

The word "document" could be used in place of "file" in any of the above sentences, that is a matter of style. "Consisting of" seems wordy, but is not incorrect.
