Hi, beginner here.  Can anyone recommend a straightforward, reliable, inexpensive (or free) utility that I can put on an ASP Classic web page that will allow my suppliers and graphics people to upload large files occasionally?  Not a high-volume customer-oriented application, but one where I will, as-needed, tell someone about it so they can upload a file too big to email.  Needs to be simple to get up and running as I'm a beginner and don't have a lot of time for this project.

Hello

I recomend aspsimpleupload.dll for this purpose. Very light weight and free.

You can get details on its usage at http://www.host-it.co.uk/support/guides/ASPSimpleUpload/index.html

I will provide the download link to u soon..

I personally use ASP SmartUpload so I will recommend you use this. You can download it here (http://www.foradvice.net/smartuploadsetup.htm) and can find instructions on how to install.

mirror links for the .dlls can be found here:
http://www.dlldll.com/aspsmartupload.dll_download.html
http://www.dlldll.com/aspsmartuploadutil.dll_download.html

Im not sure how familiar you are with writing vbscript/working with forms so I have included an example of an upload script as well as a html form with basic error trapping.

HTH
<%
OPTION EXPLICIT
dim oFU, fileName, savepath
 
if request.QueryString("post") = "true" then
	on error resume next	
	
	Set oFU = Server.CreateObject("aspSmartUpload.SmartUpload")
'allowed filetypes
	oFU.AllowedFilesList = "jpg,gif,bmp"
	
	oFU.Upload
 
'the folder you want to upload the files to
	savepath = "uploadedFiles"
	oFU.Save(savepath)
	
	Set oFU = nothing
	
	if err = 0 then
		response.write("File uploaded successful")
	else
		response.write("File uploaded un-successful")
	end if
end if

actually I installed one of the other ones and it seemed to have a bug. Then my IT guy yelled at me for registering a dll on our production server so he's setting up a test server for these kinds of things. However I was hoping for something easier to get going as I don't really have a lot of time for something like this.

Dear rodell20

I am wondering what else you were expecting as an answer at EE on your above stated question ?? Two reccomendations where given to you for using file uploading in ASP where both are valid and proven solutions. You have taken more than 6 months to respond to the solutions given to you with delete request... I dont think this fair to the people who has spent time to help you out.

Dont take my comments in negative sense but it was just a concern which i wanted to share with you..

Regards
Neeraj
