Upload.asp no longer accepting documents for upload

Im currently using Upload.asp and Buffering.inc to bring Word Documents or PDF documents into my webserver from a submitted form.  Up until a few days ago, the code worked.  Now, it wont take the file I upload and write it to my server.

1.  I can remove the "FileData" from the BufferContent function, insert a regular string: "This is a test" and have it sucessfully write to the server.  But it chokes on the uploaded file.

2.  The file IS sucessfuly generated on the server, but remains empty as no data gets written to it.  File permissions on that folder right now are wide open for Admin, System, and IUSR.

3.  The files being uploaded are not complex.  I have used previously uploaded files, as well as simple "Hello World" documents.

What I need to know, is what is happening to the data of the uploaded document that is preventing upload.asp from writing it to my server now.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Here is the code that is causing me aggrivation...
Public Sub SaveToDisk(sPath)

     Dim oFS, oFile

     Dim nIndex
 

     If sPath = "" Or FileName = "" Then Exit Sub
 

     If Mid(sPath, Len(sPath)) <> "\" Then sPath = sPath & "\"
 

     Set oFS = Server.CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
 

     If Not oFS.FolderExists(sPath) Then Exit Sub
 

     Set oFile = oFS.CreateTextFile(sPath & FileName, True)

     

     'Response.write FileData

     'BREAK
 

     ' output mechanism modified for buffering

     oFile.Write BufferContent(FileData) <-- LINE GETTING THE ERROR

     oFile.Close
 

End Sub

Open in new window

try to  increase upload/download value in Metabase - IIS Server Settings.

IIS6.0 prevent the upload of files to certain size. So you need to make some changes in the default IIS settings first. Look for the "AspMaxRequestEntityAllowed" property specifies the maximum number of bytes allowed in the entity body of an ASP request. This property is related in function to MaxRequestEntityAllowed. Check with your Server Administrator to fix the max file upload size limit.

Went in and changed the metabase to accept up to 6mb of data.  The same problem exists.  Im running IIS 5.0 just so you are aware.

Im gonna close the question, because it turned out to be a differnet problem entirely.  I am using Microsoft Expressions Web as my web editor, and on certain files, if you save them through Expressions web, it corrups the page such that functionality gets destroyed.  Once I went back to an earlier version of the document and edited it a different way, the problem resolved itself.
