    Collecting EMail Attachments using Data Collection Replies


    Gang -

    The Data Collection Replies Wizard doesn't show an option to add the "Attachment" field available - is there a form I can design manually that will allow this option? It appears that Macros won't cut it, and imports would circumvent the use of email data collection - any ideas?

    The Collect Data functionality does not allow data for attachment type field.

    Fields of the following data types cannot be collected by using e-mail messages:

    • Attachment
    • AutoNumber
    • Multi-valued fields
    • OLE
