I am using ActiveFile from Infomentum to upload a file and other fields to a SQL Server database. I have followed the expamples to the letter, yet when the form is submitted I am getting an error on the line which uplaods the file

(ie UpFile.Import RSBlob.Fields.Item("Document"))

The error I get is "Operation is not allowed in this context" - I've tried everything - does anyone have any ideas?

Thanks

Perhaps the recordset is read-only.  Difficult to guess without seeing more code.

Also, please maintain this open questions:

tim.. , its advisable never to upload the actual file in the database , rather ftp the file on the server and store the path of the file as a string in the database for optimum performance , and ease of use
