Attaching files to a reply in a discussion is easy!

KEY: Click "Use Advanced Editor"

When editing your reply, the default editor will not display the "Attach File" link. To make it appear, look to the UPPER-RIGHT CORNER of your editor and click "Use Advanced Editor":

The Advanced Editor will have the "Attach" link in the lower-right corner, like you see in the document and discussion editors. From here, proceed with the normal file attachment routine:

 

  1. In the LOWER-RIGHT CORNER of your editor, locate  and click the "Attach" link:

  2. You'll get a file browser. Locate your data file and select it by clicking "Open":
    IMPORTANT: YOU CAN ONLY SELECT SINGLE FILES - NO FOLDERS
    If you need to attach a folder, please zip/compress it into a single file before attaching it.
