Hi, I am trying to get the name of the name of the file that ASPUpload just uploaded and set it to a variable to be used elsewhere in the page.  I've read material in ASPUpload site and also here: http://www.asp101.com/resources/aspupload.asp

 Set myfile = Upload.Files("FILE1") should work, but it doesn't. Here's my code right now:


      Set Upload = Server.CreateObject("Persits.Upload.1")

      Upload.OverwriteFiles = False
      On Error Resume Next

      Upload.SetMaxSize 1048576      ' Limit files to 1MB
      Count = Upload.Save("\\premfs14\sites\premium14\aasg\webroot\aura\images\faculty")

Set myfile = Upload.Files("FILE1")

what do you get when u run the following examples off the site?

<%  
Set Upload = Server.CreateObject("Persits.Upload.1")  
Upload.Save "c:\upload"
%>  
Files:<BR>  
<%  
For Each File in Upload.Files  
Response.Write File.Name & "=" & File.Path & " (" & File.Size & ")<BR>"
Next
%>  
<P>  
Other items:<BR>  
<%  
For Each Item in Upload.Form  
Response.Write Item.Name & "=" & Item.Value & "<BR>"
Next
%>  

Cheers,

Set Item1 = Upload.Form("FILE1") doesn't work.

The code you site above runs fine. I do get everything printed out correctly. The problem is that File.Name works only after it appears "For Each File in Upload.Files"

I need to get the File.Name way before it gets to html because I need to attach the file to an email.

Gosh, I am still working on this. I've read much of the aspUpload's manual and from all I can tell this should work:

      Set Upload = Server.CreateObject("Persits.Upload.1")

      Upload.OverwriteFiles = False
      On Error Resume Next

      Upload.SetMaxSize 1048576      ' Limit files to 1MB
      Count = Upload.Save("\\premfs14\sites\premium14\aasg\webroot\aura\images\faculty")

                 Set Item1 = Upload.Files("FILE1")

But when I put  File Name = <%=Item1%> in the html, I get nothing. The photo uploads, but I don't get the damn file name. So I can't attach it to an email. It's driving me nuts!

Any help would be much appreciated.

wouldn't from their example you need File Name = <%=Item1.Name%> ? as you are making Item1 a File Object?

-> their example seems horrible, I looked at it but I didnt' like it.

I agree. Many of their examples are really confusing. They actually answer their email though.
I heard back and this is how to do it:

<%
      Set Upload = Server.CreateObject("Persits.Upload.1")

      Upload.Save ("\\premfs14\sites\premium14\aasg\webroot\aura\images\faculty\")

'Set item1 = Upload.Files(1)  %>

item1 then becomes the variable that contains the file name.
