Created a Form library in SharePoint and using a InfoPath form to collect data. In the form is a Attachment control to add documents. Adding documents to the InfoPath form attached to my Form Library the document is only accessed in the InfoPath form. Is there a way for the document to be available in the InfoPath form and also in the Forms library as a metadata column similar to using document library in SharePoint?
