Save attachments to SharePoint list item



My main blocking point right now, is that I can not attach files to SharePoint list via PoweApps edit forms.

I can create app which can manage orders in SharePoint list for my company in few seconds, but we are forced to keep original email request in list. For this we are using InfoPath which works fine, but PowerApps should be much more suitable solution.


Also we are using same procedure but with excel forms, for that is also important to be able to EDIT excel/word... attachment directly on SharePoint. So what I would like to have in DisplayForm/edit form, when I click on excel file attached, it will open my excel, let me edit it and save it back directly to SharePoint like is possible now with forms on SharePoint.


Once I will have those 2 things in PowerApps, my live will be much more easier! Smiley Surprised


Would like to use PowerApps in our company, but right now... its not possible

Thank you,

@Anonymous from what I understand you are writing the attachment to a different list from the one displayed by gallery (hence the lookup for the right item).  Since this is the case, the gallery list will not be updated with the attachment.


When you save the attachment does it show up when you view the item in SharePoint?

Not applicable

@FilipK No, I can't see the attachment in Sharepoint. I can see it trying to save the attachment (dots across the top of the screen) then nothing when I go to patch all Gallery items to the new SP list.

@Anonymous I recommend logging a service call with our support team, as that will be the most efficient way to troubleshoot the issue.
