attach multiple documents to custom list. what's the best way?
I have a custom list containing information on technical drawings (name, part, author, date, revision, etc..) I also have files associated to each drawing sitting on my network server that I want to upload to sharepoint and link to their respective drawing. These documents are drawing comments (in word format, scans of the drawings (in pdf format), source files (in autocad format), Basically, I'd like an engineer who looks up a drawing in sharepoint to be able to easily pull up any of these relevant associated files with a simple from within sharepoint.
1) I know I could attach these files to each drawings, but is there a way have a separate column in my list for each attachment?
2) Would it be cleaner to create a document library for all these files and somewhat link my list of drawings to the respective document?
