Where do I find URL of Sharepoint list item attachment


In Nintex workflow - I want to copy the initial attachment (when user creates a list item and attaches file) to another Sharepoint Document Library

I see when user attaches document, the document is uploaded to Sharepoint site and gets a URL. I am using "Copy item" action, but how do I pick the URL of this attachment ?

List items have GUID's in the URL, so it won't be pretty.

I will say that there is a root Attachments folder in each list.  In this folder is a folder for each list item that has an attachment, and the folder name will match the item index.  In these folders is wehre the actual files are.

I used http://connect.nintex.com/forums/thread/7612.aspx to extract the attachments and copied it.

But your solution helped a lot too !
