I have an upload form that needs to upload resumes. I only want to accept the following file types.

rtf, doc, txt and if possible provide a seperate error if the member trys to upload a .docx file.

The docx file is due to MS new Word 2007 I know not too many people have it now but by time I get this site completed it will be more prominate.

 

So anyhow the overall question is what would the regularexpression be for this?

Here is a VB.NET example without using regular expressions:

Imports System.IO

...

        Dim fileName As String = Environment.GetFolderPath(Environment.SpecialFolder.Personal) & "\Document1.doc"
        Dim info As New FileInfo(fileName)
        Dim ext As String = info.Extension.ToLower()
        If ext = "doc" OrElse ext = "rtf" OrElse ext = "txt" Then

        End If
