Hi,

  I would like to know  how i can check the existence of a file in a local machine.

  my case, i have an input box (file)
which let user upload a file, but i am afraid user will just any how type a filename and then upload it. This will cause an error page. So I would like to check the existence of the file before I do the uploading.

You can't. That would cause major security problems, so all you can do is check files in the server.

You can, however, filter the file type the user tries to send (ACCEPT field)and you can also check if something has been uploades to the server and what has been uploaded.

For the existence of a file use the Fileexists(file) function. And too the path of the file with expandpath(file).

i.e: <cfset file = "/images/" & #prod.nr# & ".gif">
<cfif Fileexists(expandpath(file))>
.....
</cfif>
