Using DFP to upload file for person filling out email form to send attachment with email

The attachment and email works fine.
But when an attachment is not needed and the person does not put in a file to be uploaded, the email send an attachment anyway as attach.dat
Don't want that to happen.

I'll need to troubleshoot directly, see the private message section.

It appears that you have removed the attachment from the email? Do you have a backup of the email body with the attachment code still included? You shouldn't even need to use DFP, you can just bind the attachment to the file upload field.

If you set the test back up I can take a look again, but I'd have to see the problem to debug it and it appears you have removed the attachment for now.

Mr Borduin,

My apologies, i put the wrong website and FTP. Please see private message for correct information

Try binding the attachment directly to the form field instead of using the file upload server behavior. You shouldn't have to actually use file upload at all since it can get the attachment directly from the form post.

Not sure that will work.
I bound the attachment to the form field and all the email sends is the name of the file, not the actual file.
How can i get a file sent from a clients pc to come through the email without the file upload?

Did you choose the 'submitted file' radio on the email attachment page?

Ray,

Thanks for your help; i didn't use the attachment 'submitted file' radio before.
I guess i was used to doing it the old way.
By now using the 'submitted file' radio on the email attachment page, it now works perfectly and much easier to build.
