Is there a reason you're not using the core upload module? It does exactly
what you're looking for and behaves in a predictable manner. If it's a
matter of styling it or changing how it outputs, you can customize it
through templates.

As far as answering your question, I would look at, and forgive me - I'm
on Drupal 6 with CCK, make sure the field is set to be displayed.
