Importing File Attachments from a Synced Table

    We are trying to import File Attachment fields using QuickBase Sync (from one QB application to another). Anyone found a way to make this work? The only work around that I can think of is to capture the file link in the original table and use that in the Synced table for the user to download the file. Would prefer to import the actual file though.

    Thanks!

    The only way I know is to have a link to the file like this

    URLRoot() & "up/" & [_DBID_PROJECTS] & "/a/r" & [Related project] & "/e30/v0"

    where fid 30 in the source table has the file attachment.
    it could be made fancier by showing this as an href link with the name of the file to click on.

    This can probably be done in script using Blobs and FormData. I may look at it but I don't have a lot of extra time right now.

    We use Zapier anytime we are trying to move file attachments from one app to another.
