Copy attachments from one list to another list

Jump to solution

I have two lists. List A and List B.

When I  create an item with and attached file in list A,  the file attachment will copy to list B.

If I add a file attachment to an item that's has already been created in list A, it does not copy the file attachment to

list B. I am new to SharePoint and Nintex workflow.

Hi

What is your workflow setting? Is it run on item creation? 

Does your workflow also run when items are modified to replace or modify the attachments? Are you copying the whole item from List A to List B or only attachments? I guess List B would be a library if you are moving only attachments.

Please provide some details about the issue and the screen shot of your workflow settings and workflow itself.

Hello Kapil,

Sorry for the late response. My workflow settings  run on items created and modified. yes I'm copying the whole item, with the attachments, from List A to List B. Both A and B are Lists. I do not have a library set up.

Thank you,

Carietta

Hi Carietta Austin,

Just modifying the attachments does not trigger the workflow. See this for reference:

Is it possible to trigger a workflow when an attachment has been modified? 

Or you add the start up condition in the workflow on modification, where Modified (previous version) is not equal to <compared to Field> Modified.

Do the both lists exists in same site collection/site or different sites?
