CoolWriteups Solved: Turning Off Attachments Option For Lists In SharePoint 2007



Disabling Attachments for a list is very simple to do but can be tricky to find for those who have only recently started using MOSS 2007.

To disable Attachments in a List do the following:

  • Open the List;
  • Click Settings > List Settings to open the settings window for the list;
  • Click Advanced Settings and in the new window click the “Disabled” option for Attachments.
  • While you’re there you can also configure Search and a host of other options.

Good luck and happy coding.
