Add 'attachment' field with vba

I'm creating a tool to create tables from given data (name, field-type, format, etc.). Everything is working smooth so far, but I have absolutely no clue how to create a field with the datatype 'attachment' with VBA. I've searched for a while now, but couldn't find anything helpful

I am trying to add an attachment to a subform. I update the control source to say "Attachment" in the properties section which matches the name of the field in the table where it's pulling from.

When I open in form view and right-click on the text box (for attachment) the manage attachments selection is greyed out. If I go to the table I can open the attachment.

Any idea why this isnt working in the form

Manage attachments

I have a form in which the fields are enabled or disabled based on user permissions. If a user has only 'Read' permission then all the fields are disabled else the fields are enabled. Now I also have an attachment field in my form. If I disable the attachment field, then the user is unable to view the attachments. I want the users with 'Read' permission to view the attachments but not manipulate it. Like, a user with 'Read' permission must not be able to 'Add' or 'Remove' an attachment, but he must be able to 'Open' the attachment and 'Save' the attachment.

P.S: I have used the default 'attachment' which comes with MS-Access, that is I have added a field with the datatype 'attachment' and made my textbox a bound field in the form

I created a database with an attachment field that is working fine. But for future use, we will be using a SQL database so the attachment field, which is not supported in Microsoft SQL 2005 will become useless for our ASP.Net application. I would like to keep using the attachment filed in access, but I would like to add the actual file name to the table as well without having the user add it.

I can see the attachment FileData, FileName and Filetype when I go into query view, but when I attempt to create an update query that will take the FileName and populate the new field, I get an error that states
Enter Parameter Value with the ReportAttach.FileName below.

Does anyone know how I can get the Filename into a new field

I have a single table with one record per person.
I have multiple training checkboxes that every person has to check yes, but only if they've completed the training.
On my table, there is a TrainingA Yes/No field and a TrainingA Certificate attachment field.
I want to have the checkbox require a certificate be uploaded to the attachment field to be marked as Yes, and if the label for the checkbox is clicked, the attachment to open (only if uploaded).
I'm pretty good with If/Then VBA, but outside of that I'm still learning. Just looking for a little help on getting this all to work.
