File Attachment Infopath

Kimberly1467 asked
Last Modified: 2012-06-27
I am creating a form in Infopath based on a MS Access database. I am trying to add a file attachment control on the form but I keep getting the following error: "A file attachment must be bound to a non repeating field with a picture or a file attachment data type. If the field is part of a repeating group, then the file attachment control must be inside a repeating table or repeating section that is bound to that group." I tried changing the data type in the database to OLE object but Infopath does not support large binary fields.

How can I add a field attachment control to my form?
