Using the above approach, we can get the doc file attached to the notes.

However, if we try to open the file, we would get the below error message.

To get working with attachments seamlessly from the Mobile / Tablet device, we can make use of out of the box SharePoint integration feature of the product.

It will allow the user to upload any files from the local file system.

Full access to the local file system

While trying to open the word document it will open the appropriate apps installed

Hope it helps..
