“Failed to get value of the “Attachments” column from the “Attachments” field type control. See details in log. Exception message: Guid should contain 32 digits with 4 dashes (xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx)”

The attachment issue comes after customization of NewForm.aspx/EditForm.aspx page. After Customizing page even you have not attached any attachement the following error message showing on click of save button:-
“Failed to get value of the “Attachments” column from the “Attachments” field type control. See details in log. Exception message: Guid should contain 32 digits with 4 dashes (xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx)”

Resolution:-
Disabled attachment option from list
Go to list --> settings --> advance settings ---> disable attachments.

OR

If you want the attachment column to be present, open page in sharepoint designer and findout the below tag and replace it....

<TemplateName xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/WebPart/v2/ListForm">ListForm</TemplateName>

To

<TemplateName xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/WebPart/v2/ListForm">ListForm2</TemplateName>

  2. If you have successfully cusotmized your FORM then you can delete the OOTB Form and continue with your Customized form without renaming ListForm.
