Cannot add attachment in grid edit mode

    Hi,

    I am creating a form with a child table inside it and I want to be able to add attachment in grid edit mod but it seems that I can't...

    Any thoughts ?

    Thanks,

    Has there been any update on this possible functionality, please?  It would definitely be useful to be able to attach many files within the Grid Edit view.

    I understand that this functionality is not available to add an attachment directly in grid-edit. But is there a way to display the pencil icon in the grid edit report to launch a form that allows the attachment to be added to an existing record?

    The Grid Edit form does already have a pencil icon Can you clarify your question.

    It only has the pencil icon if the child record has been saved at least once.  So creating new child record directly from the parent form & trying to attach wont work.

    We typically use an add on feature that allows you drag and drop multiple files, view them view them (without downloading), merge to PDF, and email directly from the app.  Yeah its pretty sweet.

    Thanks for the responses.  This was my mistake.  I was using a table report and allowing editing instead of a grid edit report.  I now have this working as desired.  Thanks.
