    Hello Neciamarie,

    I am not sure if I have understood your question correctly. Do you mean to say that you want to prepopulate a file upload field?

    I believe its not possible to prepopulate file upload field since web browsers won't allow for security reasons. You can't upload a file without the user's selected any file itself.

    Thank you!
