  • Hi Venkat,

    Per my knowledge, when we edit the list form in InfoPath, the attachment control cannot be accessed.

    And  InfoPath form templates of types (compatibility) "SharePoint List Form" and "Workflow Form" are by Microsoft design (or under-mis-design) locked, non-modifiable and do not permit client custom code (from InfoPath Designer in VSTA, Visual Studio for Applications).

    So we cannot add more attachment control in InfoPath form for SharePoint list.

    As a workaround, I recommend to use Multiple line of text field to store the attachments instead.

    Best regards,

    Victoria

  • Hi Venkat,

    Use Repeating Table control to attach multiple attachment to the form.
