Power Apps and Attachments

I could probably write a flow to do this, but I'd really like this to be as instantaneous as possible within the app and flows usually can take a while.




I have a SharePoint list that contains attachments.

I have a second SharePoint list that I would like to copy the attachment from the first list to.


The first list only has 1 attachment per list item.


I have a patch statement that does not give me any errors, but also does not copy the attachment.


        Candidate_x0020_ID: First(colLastCandidate).ID,
        Title: "Resume",
        Description: "Uploaded with New Candidate",
        Attachments: LookUp(
            ID = First(colLastCandidate).ID


What do I need to do to get the attachment from one list to another?  convert to json, do something  Base64, ...  not sure.

Hi @Mattw112IG ,

Easily with a Flow - send the two IDs and get the attachments from one and then attach to the other, but not possible as far as I know directly (after it is saved).
