Copy/Move Attachments between sheets

I am currently using DataMesh to copy data from one sheet to another and wondering if anyone has ideas/options on how to get attachments copied over to the new sheet as well.

I can't use the copy row feature because there are a number of rows on the original sheet that are unnecessary, and the column names are different on the 2 sheets.

Any ideas on how to do this? We have access to DataMesh, Data Uploader and Zapier. I just can't think of a solution w/out having to make column name changes, which currently isn't possible.

    Hi @skarkhoff

    Copy Row is the only way I can think of to duplicate attachments across sheets, as it's not possible through Data Mesh.

    That said, I'm not familiar with all the possible capabilities of Zapier - @Andrée Starå do you know if attachments are able to be moved with Zapier? I see that one of the actions is "add attachment to row" but I don't know if you can specify the attachment from the previous sheet or not.

    Cheers,

    Genevieve

    The problem with copy row is that it copies all the columns over, while Data Mesh allows you to select which columns to copy.
