"File Field" form element not working (ASP.VB/MS Access)
Posted on 2003-11-10
I have a record insertion page that allows the user to input the date on which a MS Word document was created. I want the user to also insert a hyperlink to this document, which resides on the same server as the web site and database.
Rather than making them hand-code the link, I'd like them to be able to "browse" for it from the record insertion page, and once the page submits the hyperlink will be in the database.
I'm trying to use the "file field" form element from the DW form behaviors, but as soon as I put the "file field" in, the form no longer submits. If I just have the date text field, the form populates the database with the date. As soon as I put the file field in, the form no longer submits. I don't even have any insert behavior assoviated with it - just the act of putting it in the form causes the form to no longer work.
