Submitting correctly but no attachment

Greetings!

I have a form that is submitting correctly and the progress bar is showing that the file upload is progressing. But when I receive the e-mail it generates - no attachment?

Any ideas what is happening?

Thanks,
Martin

for a file to upload, the forms encoding type must be set to multipart/form-data.


change the form tag to:

php:
<form  action="referral_doctor.php" method="post" enctype="multipart/form-data" name="CopperstoneDentistReferral_Copperstone_Referral" class="Copperstone_Referral" id="CopperstoneDentistReferral_Copperstone_Referral">

Thanks Jason! That worked perfectly.

Just another question, if I was using CSS Form builder and I included a form upload field, should it not take care of this for me? Or is this something I will have to be aware of to update manually in future?

Thanks,
Martin

Yes, form builder should change the doctype if you add a file field element to the form using the form builder wizard, I just did a test to make sure and the dactype was set correctly on the form I created.

It is a good thing to be aware of though, just to make sure.
