Hello,
I know that an attachment can be used for computing. But what do you call a document "on paper" which is added to a formal letter, a cover letter or a cv? Is it also an attachment?

Thanks

    It is (also an attachment).
    Such other documents are often physically attached to the letter by a paper clip or other mechanical device. I expect that is why we use attachment in the context of e-mail.

    It's an enclosure if the document and its attachments are to be put into an envelope.
