Have you considered a slightly different approach to the use of file attachments ? A number of users find it very useful to set up a specific page for attachments, and within the form where you want to allow users to attach (or view) these, simply have a ‘go to page xxx’ function so you only have one copy of each attachment on the form and on the attachments page have a ‘return’ function to take them back to the page they came from when they have done.

For instance if you allow your users to detach as well as attach, and have 2 copies of the same file on your form, they could update one of these files but not the other and it may be harder to manage ?
