Save Form as Attachement to List

We are using Nintex with SharePoint Foundation.

What I need to do is have the form saved as an attachment to a list.

So the user would:

     1. Fill out a form

     2. Attach files

     3. Submit the form

The list (or workflow) would

     1. Populate a few fields with some of the form information

     2. Attach any files to the new item

     3. Attach the form itself as a PDF to the list item

     4. etc.

I've search around and couldn't find an answer on how to do this.

Any tips or links would be appreciated.

Thanks

I totally forgot I asked this question. Too bad no one had an answer. I still need to figure it out.

Hi Kurt Hilborn,

So you have the form that has been filled out and saved as a list item. Now you want to convert this form as a pdf and attach it to the same item? or is it a different list?

Please elaborate.

Convert Forms to PDF w/ Workflow 

How can I convert Nintex Form into PDF using Nintex Workflow 2013 

You may not be able to do this as you are using SharePoint Foundation and Word automation service is not available.

Hi Kapil, I would like the pdf of the form be attached on the email when going to the manager's approval/rejection.

We are looking to do that same as DA Arcil. We are using SharePoint Foundation 2013. The form results don't need to be in PDF, just a formated text file would workf for our needs. We just need both. 1 entry into the list. 1 file sent as an attachement.
