How Can I get a file from a document library into a PowerApps form Attachment

Hi

 

I have a requirement to have a submission with a number of associated files which I need to copy to a SharePoint Document Library.

 

I cannot see how to use a document library as a source of PowerApps Attachments.

 

Or how I can copy a list of moninated files, the filenames held in a PowerApps Form, to another Document Library.

 

Regards

 

Nigel

The attachment control does not work with document libraries, only with SharePoint list attachments.

 

For moving files around I would look at Flow. Pass the list of files to Flow and let it move files from one location to the other.

Hi Shane

 

Could I use flow to move documents from a document library to a PowerApps Form Attachment ?

No. Sorry. 😞 

 

You might look at the Azure Blob Connector and see if it helps you.
