Hi tmueller18,

Your boolean operators are wrong.

if ((sFileExtension == ".doc") || (sFileExtension == ".txt"))
{
    // extension is .DOC or .TXT
}
else
{
    // it is not
}

Cheers!
Brad

!= is "NOT EQUALS"
== is "EQUALS"

You were checking to see if the extension is "NOT .DOC or NOT .TXT".  One of those conditions will ALWAYS be true.

>One of those conditions will ALWAYS be true.

because it cannot be both at the same time.
