I'm trying to use persits asp upload to allow my users to insert a picture of themselves into a details page. I've managed to get the upload part to work but I don't know how to get the image path into the database so that I can insert it into the details page. Here is my code now. Can someone give me general idea of where to go from here.

form page<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<

<%@LANGUAGE="VBSCRIPT" CODEPAGE="1252"%>
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1" />
<title>Untitled Document</title>
</head>

<body>
<FORM METHOD="POST" ENCTYPE="multipart/form-data" ACTION="UploadScript1.asp">
File 1:<INPUT TYPE=FILE NAME="FILE1">
Description 1:<INPUT TYPE=TEXT NAME="DESCR1"><BR>
File 2:<INPUT TYPE=FILE NAME="FILE2">
Description 2:<INPUT TYPE=TEXT NAME="DESCR2"><BR>

<INPUT TYPE=SUBMIT VALUE="Upload!">

</FORM>
</body>

Ahh lovely, another ASP question (**wink to Jason...!)

The problem is that Persist has been configured to upload the image to the directory "C:\upload" which is no good because that directory doesn't exist for the user - only on the server.

So, what you need to do is:

  1.  Decide on a directory that can be accessed by the browser, something like "uploads/images"

  2.  Configure the upload tool to use this directory using the mapPath command (which turns the above directory into "C:\...\uploads\images"
       Change:
             Upload.Save "c:\upload"
       to read:
             Upload.Save Server.MapPath("uploads/images")

  3.  You then add the file name to the end of the original directory path and save it to the database
       <%
       Dim fullFileName
       fullFileName = "uploads/images/" & File.Name
       %>
