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!
