From the help

 

Add Attachments (Data Management)—ArcGIS Pro | Documentation

Multiple files can be attached to a single feature class or table record. To accomplish this, the Match Table should contain multiple records for that input ID (for example, record 1 has an InputID of 1 and a pathname pic1a.jpg, and record 2 has an InputID of 1 and a pathname pic1b.jpg).

I can't, for the life of me, figure it out.  When generating the match table, it wants one field, but to have multiple attachments, I need multiple fields with the file name, right?

It wants multiple records with the same ID for each thing you want in one field... sort of the reverse of what you have which is one ID and multiple fields... Sorry I can't offer any suggestions

Hi, did you manage to figure it out? I am currently in the same boat. My working folder has EE0020_Report 1, EE0020_Report 2 etc in it, and my unique identifier in my feature is EE0020. I need all the reports that has an EE0020 in it, to link to the specific point. It used to work, now I am not getting it right.
