Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

it will be very hard to do that using javascript..

the problem is that i don't know what You are You have a IIS server(Internet Information Server)? cause this can't accept files..

normally You would use the following though...

<form name="yourformsname" method="post" enctype="multipart/form-data">

to get the user to browse for a file use :

<input type="file" name="whatever">

then use all the input fields, and that should normally do the trick, however like i said...not with IIS...

good luck.
