Hi,

I need users to upload a file from the desktop and want them to store it in this folder "c:\CFprojects\Docs\". After that, if there is a document in this folder, I need that to be linked in the page.

Please help me out.

Thanks in advance.

<cfset varTmp = form.doc>


<cffile action="UPLOAD"
        filefield="form.doc"
        destination="c:\CFprojects\Docs\"
        nameconflict="MAKEUNIQUE"
        accept="*.*">

Upload Results
<cfoutput>
<cfif fileexists("c:\CFprojects\Docs\#form.doc#")>
#form.doc#
</cfif>
</cfoutput>

or on a page other than the upload page

<cfdirectory action="list" directory="c:\CFprojects\Docs\" name="myDir">

<cfoutput query = "MyDir">
<a href="http://relativepathto/cfprojects/docs/#myDir.name#">#myDir.name#</a>
</cfouput>

Hi, I could get the links too.. but it is not opening.  When I click the link, it says "the page cannot be found"

What is a Denial of Service (DoS)?

A DoS is a malicious attempt to prevent the normal operation of a computer system. You may frequently see the terms 'DDoS' (Distributed Denial of Service) and 'DoS' used interchangeably, but there are some subtle differences.

    <tr>
      <td class = "tdhdr-v"> Upload </td>
      <td class = "tdhdr1"> <input type = "file" name = "Nprtfile" size = "20" >
                        <input type="submit" name="fileUpload" value="Go!" />
      </td>
    </tr>

<cffile action = "upload"  
      fileField = "Nprtfile"  
      destination = "c:\CFProjects\DevAG\temp\"
      accept = "image/jpg, application/ms-excel, application/msword, application/pdf">

<cfdirectory action="list" directory="c:\CFprojects\DevAG\Temp\" name="Dirfil">

</cfoutput>

<cfoutput query = "Dirfil">
<tr>
<a href="http://mypath/cfprojects/DevAG/#Dirfil.name#">#Dirfil.name#</a>
</tr>
</cfoutput>

And also I am not able to upload ms-excel files.

try adding

<cfoutput query = "Dirfil">
<tr>
<a href="http://mypath/cfprojects/DevAG/#Dirfil.name#.DOC">#Dirfil.name#</a>
</tr>
</cfoutput>

 If that works we'll be needing some extension handling...

Thank you very much for your help. What I did was, just I made it mypath under the webserver (inet). that's all. It works great.
