Infopath forms


  • we currently have a InfoPath form but it seems the attach file functionality isn't working. When you select browse the screen just greys out. I've tried removing it and the sp form doesn't show the behavior. replicatable on multiple different lists and we have removed the attachment field and re added it but same issue.

  • Hi rednerd- I'd check the trust settings in InfoPath. Is this a form embedded in SP using the InfoPath web part? Is it working when you preview it in InfoPath?

  • Hi rednerd13,

    Have you published the InfoPath form to a SharePoint form library? Or you just use the File Attachment in InfoPath form?

    Per my test, Whenever I try to publish the template which has File Attachment(base64binary as datatype), it showing following exception.

    The selected field cannot be promoted because its datatype is not supported: base64binary

    So we cannot promoted File Attachment to SharePoint form library.

    You can use the default File Attachment in SharePoint list instead of creating an InfoPath form.

    Best Regards,
