I like to make changes to my code, Instead of uploading the file with the file name
of the file. I want to change it to upload the file to whatever name I want

Dim FileName As String
        Dim i As Integer
        Dim StoreID As String = ReadCookie(Tokens.StoreId)
        Dim StoreDir As String = CheckStoreDirectoryExists()
        Dim uploads As HttpFileCollection = HttpContext.Current.Request.Files
 
        NewTempDir()
 
        For i = 0 To uploads.Count - 1
            Dim FileToUpload As HttpPostedFile = uploads(i)
            '/*********************************/
            ' Error Handling here error
            '/*********************************/
            If (FileToUpload.ContentLength = 0) Then
                With lblMessage
                    lblMessage.Visible = True
                    .CssClass = "labelGreen"
                    .Text = "Sorry there is no Excel File to Upload please try again."
 
                End With
 
            Else
                FileName = System.IO.Path.GetFileName(FileToUpload.FileName)
                Try
                    FileToUpload.SaveAs(StoreDir & "\" + FileName)
                Catch ex As Exception
                    With lblMessage
                        lblMessage.Visible = True
                        .CssClass = "labelGreen"
                        .Text = "Sorry there is no Excel File to Upload please try again."
 
                    End With
                End Try
            End If
        Next i

'you wouldn't need this line:
FileName = System.IO.Path.GetFileName(FileToUpload.FileName)

'you could change it to the new file name with the correct extension:
FileName = "NewFileName.TXT"

'the rest would be the same
      Try
            FileToUpload.SaveAs(StoreDir & "\" + FileName)

See the FileToUpload control already has the file. You use the "SaveAs" to specify a new file name. I think that's all you have to do.

Just a tip ;-) Usually B grades are given when the expert doesn't write code and just refer to links, or writes incomplete code. If the answer was right on, then the grade should be A. Thanks!
