Topic: Designer 7 form - Change the xml attachment to a form field on

I'm new to this SW. I dig it. Did an e-mail survey recently and it worked great. EXCEPT, all of the xml attachments have the same file name. So, I get an e-mail from John with survey_data.xml attached. Sara's also has survey_data.xml attached. This causes two problems. 1.) when I go to save attachments, I have to change the file names manually so as not to overwrite and 2 .) the filenames end up in the spreadsheet, so I'd like them to contain useful info. I am planning a much larger survey in which I would like to associate individuals with their data files.

So, does anyone how to change the name of the .xml attachment to 'fieldname'.xml? Or even 'emailaddress.xml'? For instance, text field in the form says "name". User inputs "John". On submit, the e-mail has the attachment: John.xml instead of the default: 'filename'_data.xml. There does not seem to be an easy way to do it with the standard sidebar tools/panels.
Thanks for any help.
