Hello, I'm going to refer you to this previous best answer that helped when someone else was unable to attach any files in Gmail.

Let me know if you are able to follow the steps, and get it working.

Regards

Hi,

If you're using the Gmail app on your tablet, try resetting the cache. To do so, open Settings > Apps > Gmail > Storage. Then tap on Clear cache.

If you're still unable to attach your files, choose Clear data. This will reset the Gmail app to its default settings and you'll need to log in again to retrieve your Gmail inbox.

What type of file are you trying to send? Gmail has an attachment size limit of 20 MB. If your attachment is larger than this size, try sending it using Google Drive. In Gmail, select Attach > Insert from Drive.
Thank for your help. Unfortunately I am using a tablet not a laptop or computer, I can't find those settings.

Some this problem arise, when the file you want to attach is too big. Try to attach small file and check it attached or not. If attached means, the above problem.
