    Once in the advanced screen scroll down to additional options section. Under attachments you will see Manage Attachments. Click on Manage Attachments. Now you want to click add files, then browse. Select the file you want to upload, then click upload. I hope this helps as well.

    I have not found an exact replacement in stock - most are much smaller in length. I have a few suggestions.

    Samtec offers a 20-pin cable in the length that you need. I would try trimming one with a razor blade down to 18 pins. Unfortunately it is not stocked at the electronic distributors, so there will be a lead time from the factory. Here is an example:

    It would be worth your while to contact the factory directly to see if they can get you exactly what you need:

    eBay has Chinese sellers offering 18 pin cables, but not in the length that you need:

    It might be possible to use a cable extender to join two shorter cables to fit your machine. I did not find an 18 pin extender, but a 20 pin could work if you insert the flex cables to the one side. The extender would need to be mounted on something ridged in the machine.

    Another possibility is to use two 14 pin cables. Cut 4 positions off one, trim the edge of the other, and use the two in place of the 18, taped together. It may sound a little crazy, but I think that it could work. Be advised that my 14 pin cable from CarveWright is only 21" long.

    If it were me, I would first contact Samtec. If that didn't pan out I would try two 14 pin cables as described.

    Sorry I could not be of more help.
