I have a table/query in my DB with an attachment field so I can attach a copy of the contract for the current client but I don't know how to put that into a form or if it can even be done.

Please advise

You drag the attachment field into the form and it will be placed into an attachment control automatically.

It's not showing up as anything that I can see. What would it be called?

I thought maybe it had a standard field name that would be the same universally since mine didn't show up as the field name I chose.
