The problem is that we see the variables in the URL, but it is empty in the body of the script:

URL: "http://localhost/inst_add_assig.php?sec=99&co=9990"

page: inst_add_assig.php

[code]
<?php
include 'include.inc';
session_start();

if (empty($assigTitle)){
?>

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">
<html>
<head>
<title>Add an Assignment</title>
<link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css" type="text/css">
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">
<script language="JavaScript" type="text/JavaScript">
<!--
function MM_reloadPage(init) {  //reloads the window if Nav4 resized
  if (init==true) with (navigator) {if ((appName=="Netscape")&&(parseInt(appVersion)==4)) {
    document.MM_pgW=innerWidth; document.MM_pgH=innerHeight; onresize=MM_reloadPage; }}
  else if (innerWidth!=document.MM_pgW || innerHeight!=document.MM_pgH) location.reload();
}
MM_reloadPage(true);
//-->
</script>
</head>

<body bgcolor="#FFFFe8">

<div id="Layer1" style="position:absolute; left:0px; top:0px; width:508px; height:52px; z-index:1"><img src="logo/eSubmissionbannerBigLighter.jpg" width="783" height="69"></div>

    </tr>
  </table>
</form>

<p>&nbsp;</p>
</body>
</html>



<?php
}
else if (!empty($assigTitle))
{

 
if($HTTP_POST_FILES['uploadedFile']['size'] <=0)
{
    print"<b>Not recieved.</b><br>";
}
else
{    
      $assig=$_POST['assigTitle'];
      //$sect= $sec;
        //$cour= $_POST['courseName'];
      $username = strtolower($_SESSION["loginUsername"]);
      $dir =  "instructor/" . $username . "/" . $assig . "/";
      if(!file_exists($dir))
      mkdir($dir,0700);
        
        echo "***".$sec."***".$co;
        
        /******************************/
        
        //$assig=$_REQUEST['assigTitle'];
        //$username = strtolower($_SESSION["loginUsername"]);
      $destination=  "instructor/" . $username . "/". $assig . "/".$HTTP_POST_FILES['uploadedFile']['name'];
      
      copy($HTTP_POST_FILES['uploadedFile']['tmp_name'],$destination);
      //$HTTP_POST_FILES['uploadedFile']['name']);
      echo "******". $destination;
}
}
?>

[/code]

When pressing the submit button, the page will alwayes consider the statement "if (empty($assigTitle))" true
and I get the following URL
[url]http://localhost/inst_add_assig.php?co=&sec=%20enctype=[/url]

instead of adding the variables in the action part of the form tag
create hidden inputs inside your form

<form method="POST" action="inst_add_assig.php">
.. rest of form stuff
<input type="hidden" name="co" value="<?=$co?>">
<input type="hidden" name="sec" value="<?=$sec?>">
</form>

also i cant see where $assigTitle is getting initialised???

should you not have something like

$assignTitle = $_POST["assigTitle"];

before the if statment
