Static vs. Dynamic?

I'm creating a from in LC that needs to be dynamic because of a ADD/REMOVE table for school information.  I also have included the funcationality of attaching documents in another section of the form.  I run into the problem that now the form is saved in a dynamic format, the user is able to add/remove rows in a table but when the user fills out the attachment portion of the form, when sent, those attachments don't appear in the email.  However, when the form is saved as a Static form, the ADD/REMOVE table doesn't work but the attachments are embedded in the form when emailed and is viewable.  Can anyone help me out on this?

Can you verify that the attachments are there before emailing? IN Acrobat you will have an attachments tab and you shoudl see them there.

Thanks for the heads up Paul.  I checked under the Attachments tab in Acrobat and found that the file does exist and is viewable.  However, this poses another question.  I have four seperate fields (ie. resume, cover letter, etc) associated to a particular document.  When the form is submitted, and the attachments from the four fields are found under the attachments tab in Acrobat, does this inhibit the ability to move a particular file to a particular folder?

Nope ....that attachments tab has the ability to save the attachment that is highlighted to any location that your computer can see.

The Save button will only become active when you choose an attachment to manipulate.

If I were to run a procedure so that when the form is received, the attachments will be able to be scraped and stored automatically?  I guess what I'm trying to get is whether or not all the data/attachments in the form can be moved over to a repository automatically where there is a one-to-one relationship between the attachment and its associated field in the repository.

There are commands exposed through Acrobat that will allow you to initiate the saving of the attachments but the user will have to choose a location for the stirage of the attachments. This is done for security reasons.....the user must be involved in these types of scenarios.

If location isn't the issue and I would just have a procedure that would take all attachments and direct them to one folder, this shouldn't be an issue where the user has to set the location, correct?

Right ...you can initiate the save (bring up a file dialog) and then the user picks the location and the save happens.
