I am sure this question has probably been asked already, but haven't found it.

I have an unbound form and wold like to be able to use the attachment field functionality. Is this possible and if so how?

What's the purpose of using the Attachment field? What are you trying to store in the field?

I see ... I thought perhaps it would be something that could be linked instead of "embedded".

You can work with Attachment fields via code. I've not done it, but here's a link to a tutorial which may help:
