I am Trying to Extract the Infopath form attachments to other sharepoint library , Can someone help me to extract using some or the other way. I am using SharePoint 2013 with Infopath form 2010 version
After Extensive search found dead easy way to extract the attachments from infopath forms.
- Open the SharePoint Site in SharePoint Designer
- Go to All Files
- Go to Lists
- Go to List where your infopathform is deployed to create a new item
- Go to Attachments folder
And there you go you find each and every folder with all the attachments of infopathform available for you to access.
Documents attached in the InfoPath Form are actually saved in a hidden folder. For example: If your list/library is TestList the attachments will be stored in [sitename]/TestList/Attachments/[filename] If you right click on the attachment and select 'Copy Shortcut' you will get the path. Use that path in your workflow to copy the attachment to other library.
