File Attachment Issue

I am having an issue with file attachment script.  If several files are attached (3+) and removed, they can no longer be opened.  Also, the actual attachments are not being capture in the list on the form properly.

Thanks for your assistance.

Hi There,

Please share the sample form and also the version of Acrobat and designer that you are using?

I am using Designer 6.2.  I don't have the option to upload a PDF, only images or hyperlink.

Mayank,

Did you have luck with the issue?  I have determined the feature will only work for a couple attachments that are added or removed a minimal number of times.

I am unable to catch hold of the issue but the problem is even if you have two files also. The files are unable to open once you have clicked on remove attachment after selecting a file. It's like the list still has the name but the value of attachment in null.
