Copy file(s) from doclib to a list

Hi All,

I have a question about copying or moving files from a document library to a SharePoint list (as attachment)

I have a doclib on SP site called Dropbox, people can store files there which they can use in a later stage to upload them as attachment into a SP list (called Database).

Is there a way to have workflow which enables the user to copy or move the files from document library based on a column (called ProjectID) to the list Database and create a new entry in that list again based on the column ProjectID?

Thanks you so much for your help!

Regards

Re: Copy file(s) from doclib to a list

Hi Michel Sargentini‌,

You can't directly move the library items to a list as attachments with the help of Nintex Workflow. Instead using a workflow whenever item created/modified in a library based on ProjectID, using update/create a list item action set library item url(s) in a list field.

Thanks,

I am telling to add library item url ("Item Url" in Nintex workflow) to a list field using "Update Item" action. So that if you open a list item from the url you can able to open the attachment.
