CFFILE action="upload" problem

I have problem of uploading file using cffile.
Here is my code:

<CFIF (isDefined("FORM.filename") AND Len(FORM.filename) GT 0)>
     <CFFILE     DESTINATION="\" action="UPLOAD" filefield="FORM.filename" nameconflict="OVERWRITE">
<form name="form1" method="post" action="uploadtest.cfm">
<input type="file" name="filename">
<input type="submit" name="Submit" value="Submit">

when I tested it, it gave me this following error:

Error in CFFILE tag

The form field specified in the CFFILE tag (FILENAME) does not contain an uploaded file. Please be sure that you have specified the correct form field name.

The error occurred while processing an element with a general identifier of (CFFILE), occupying document position (10:2) to (10:92).

what did I do wrong?
Much appreciated.

I found the solution. I need the 'enctype="multipart/form-data"' in  my form tag.

It should be:
<form name="form1" method="post" action="uploadtest.cfm" 'enctype="multipart/form-data">
No comment has been added lately, so it's time to clean up this question.
I will leave the following recommendation in the Cleanup topic area:
