You cannot use the file select item to select folders. Your only bet would be to write a script the lists all the folders in a given directory, and have links for each folder that mark that folder as the target ni your DB or script or whatever...

To start off you can use this script from w3 to list all subfolders inside a folder

<%
dim fs,fo,x
set fs=Server.CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
set fo=fs.GetFolder("c:\test\")

for each x in fo.SubFolders
  'Print the name of all subfolders in the test folder
  Response.write(x.Name & "<br />")
next

set fo=nothing
set fs=nothing
%>

From here... You need to modify the "  Response.write(x.Name & "<br />")" line to produce a link, that executes a script to select that folder.
ie
Response.write("<a href=""selectfolder.asp?folder=" & server.urlencode("c:\test\" &  x.Name) & """ >" & x.Name  & "</a><br />")

On that script then it takes the folder name and adds it to you DB or whatever you need that folder name for...
None of this is tested. Just pointers in the right direction!!!
Hope it helps
