    Attached document in Insert File control only opens up in Read only?!

    Hello,

     I've put a insert file control on a InfoPath 2007 form but when I go back to the submitted file and open it up again, it only opens up in Read Only...how can I make the document it editable?

     Are you asking how to edit an attached file while it is attached to an InfoPath form?  I don't think this is possible.  You'll need to save it to your hard drive, edit the file, and then re-attach it.

    Well it wasn't doing that before, so I'm confused why it would revert to edit only now.  But then before, I had it extracted and stored in a seperate document library.  The code got corrupted and now I can't find the code to reset it.... I don't suppose anyone knows how to deal with this issue also?

    I'm facing a similar problem, did you find any solution?  I really want to find a way to open a file attached to an infopath form and be able to edit the file and resave it, keeping it attached to the form the whole time.  I know I can save it locally and re-attach it to the form, but not all of my users are that tech-smart.  Ideas?
