PHP mail with attachment

I am trying to create an online form that sends out an email  In addition I want to be able to attach a file to the emailed form.

I have everything but the attachment working.

/////////////////////////////////  CODE FOR ATTAHMENT  /////////////////////////
$subject='New Vendor Application';
$textmessage=$email_message;
$name=$first_name;
$email='admin@me.com';
$recipient='rgranlund@me.com';
$mime_boundary=md5(time()); // unique boundary marker for your multi-part message
$mime_type="application/docx"; // change this to the correct mime type for your file
$filename=$prod_doc;
$document=$prod_doc; 
 
 $tmp_handle=fopen($document,'rb'); 
 $tmp_contnt=fread($tmp_handle,filesize($document)); 
 fclose($tmp_handle); 

$header = "From: ". $name . " <" . $email . ">\n";
$header .= "Reply-To: ". $name . " <" . $email . ">\n";
$header .= "Return-Path: <".$email.">\n"; 
$header .= "MIME-Version: 1.0\n"; 
$header .= "X-Mailer: PHP/" . phpversion()."\n";
$header.="Content-Type:multipart/mixed;boundary=\"".$mime_boundary."\"\n";
 
$email_message="--".$mime_boundary."\n";
$email_message.="Content-Type:text/plain;charset=iso-8859-1\n";
$email_message.="Content-Transfer-Encoding:7bit\n\n";
$email_message.=$textmessage."\n\n";

$email_message.="--".$mime_boundary."\n";
$email_message.="Content-Type:".$mime_type.";name=\"".$filename."\"\n";
$email_message.="Content-Transfer-Encoding:base64\n";
$email_message.="Content-Disposition:attachment;filename=\"".$filename."\"\n\n";
$email_message.=chunk_split(base64_encode($tmp_contnt))."\n\n";
$email_message.="--".$mime_boundary."--\n\n";

mail($recipient, $subject, $email_message, $header);

I know my problem is here:
$mime_type="application/docx"; // change this to the correct mime type for your file
$filename=$prod_doc;
$document=$prod_doc;

Your code basically works but you should be seeing several error messages about undefined variables.  Lines 3,4,9, and 10 are trying use variables that have no value in the code that you have shown.  For a test so you can work out the problems, comment out the last line and use a simple text file for the attachment so you can echo the $email_message to see what you have.  This is what I did.  Just make up a simple text file with like 4 short lines that you will be able to read on the screen.
/////////////////////////////////  CODE FOR ATTAHMENT  /////////////////////////

$filename=$prod_doc;
