How to add multiple attachments in SharePoint Infopath form


Hello Everyone,

I want to add multiple attachments in SharePoint info-path form.
It is present in infopath designer. But, if I am editing the form directly from the top ribbon of the SharePoint list, this control is missing. Is there any possibility to add multiple attachments?
pls help me

Hi, @Leilivazietan-9959 ,

For adding multiple attachments, you will need to create a blank form to get the repeating table control. When you use InfoPath to customize the form for lists, the data is directly mapped to the list. As lists don't support repeating sets of data within one row, neither do InfoPath forms. You can only add a data connection to a library to hold the attachments.

Hi, @Leilivazietan-9959 ,

Sorry for possible misunderstanding due to my reply. And I would like to know a bit more information about your task. From your original post, I assume you want to add a repeating table to add multiple attachments. This feature simply does not work for a SharePoint list. Adding a data connection to document library which makes you be able to submit the form to that library for holding. That is not supported by a SharePoint list. You cannot add a repeating table for a list connected InfoPath form.

And I am not quite clear that with the automatically created list form in InfoPath, you can add multiple attachments one by one through the attachment control. What makes you looking for an other approach for adding multiple attachments.
