File Field not uploading image.

Hi ,

I am trying to upload images to a directory.
The file field is in an insertion form. So the action field defaults to MM_EditAction. I don't know what to put in the action field, since I want the image to be uploaded to a special folder.

If DW does not allow the image to be uploaded to a folder , does it go into a field in the database.
Currently I have the file field named as the field in table. But nothing goes into the table.

I also have other fields in the insertion form that are related to the same table as the image field.

How does the file filed really work? What can I do to upload an image?

Help please please.

YOu don't upload files using Flash. It doesn't have the right tools. A text field is NOT an upload button. A Flash button is NOT an upload button. It won't work that way. You need to make an HTML form with an input type FILE option. It will generate a standard HTML button, and you CANNOT change it. The server also has to support it.

Hi , thanks for the input , but I needed a solution in a hurry. so I kind of figured it out with the help of plenty research online.

I wasn't using Flash , sorry for giving you that impression.

What I did find out was that the file field upload in dreamweaver doesn't just work like that. You have to modify the code. The documentation for this field in dreamweaver is insufficient. So I found an extension that does it. I used a pure asp code extension that I found in www.msdn.microsoft.com/library,  Steven W. Disbrow is brilliant!!!

But thank you for responding anyways webwoman.

No form elements in Dreamweaver work without modification. Hardly anything in any WYSI(N)WYG editor works without modification -- especially things that require some sort of processing on the server.

Glad you got it to work though. You might want to check out some of the other asp upload components, a pure asp solution really only works for very small files.
