Look up the Import Export User Guide for the version of Agile that you are running, and read through it. You can attach files using either aXML or PDX formats, but that is the only way of doing it using Import (you cannot specify attachments in delimited text files).

 You can also load just files using FileLoad. Look for the chapter on using FileLoad in the same manual as noted above (it is the last one). It is much easier to use, but it *only* loads attachments (whereas Import can load item data AND attachments).

 Or you can combine the 2 methods and load item data (as needed) using Import, and then attach files using FileLoad. Something to note, if you run FileLoad and it processes a file, there is no going back. FileLoad *does not* check for duplicates, it assumes that if you tell it to attach a file, it should be attached. So you need to be careful if you have any errors to *NOT* simply run the data file again, as FileLoad will attach all the files specified, whether they exist or not. It is usually best that if you do have errors, to use the BAD file, fix the issues in there as it only has those record that had an error and should therefore be processed again.

And what objects will the CAD files be linked to??? Design Folders, Parts, Documents, Changes??
 The objects are either in the Agile database, or they are not. If they are not, then you need to load them using Import.
 Once the objects that the CAD file should be attached to are in the Agile database, then you can use FileLoad  to attach the CAD files to the objects they should be linked to.

 If all you want to do is put the CAD files somewhere (but not link them to Agile objects) then you should not use Agile, but instead use your CAD system to manage the files. Agile is not a file management application.
 But if you really MUST use Agile, link the CAD files to the Items that they are the design files for. And if that is not a possibility (for whatever reason), create appropriately-named Design Folder objects and store the files under them.

Hello Dhananjay

 Are the Design objects already in Agile and you are looking to attach the files to them?
