Hi.

I am want to use FSO to copy a local file over to the web server using client-side JavaScript.
The code below works fine if I uncomment target_spec, however when I try and build up a string dynamically to do the job I get a "Bad File Name" error.

Any ideas how I can correctly format the target_spec string to get it working?

Thanks, Ken.


[code]<html>
<head>
<title>Test1</title>
<script type="text/javascript">
function fnSaveServerImage()
{
    var server01 = "fvmweb994";
    var source_file = document.all.txtFile.value.replace(/\\/g,'\\\\');
    var target_file = "target001.jpg";
    var g_image_target_path = "F$\\TVP dotNET Web Applications\\TVP_SpeedWatch\\administration\\logos\\";

    var target_spec = "";
    target_spec += "\\\\\\\\";
    target_spec += server01 + "\\\\";
    target_spec += g_image_target_path.replace(/\\/g,'\\\\');
    target_spec += target_file;
   
    //var target_spec = "\\\\fvmweb994\\F$\\TVP dotNET Web Applications\\TVP_SpeedWatch\\administration\\logos\\target2.jpg";    

    var fso = new ActiveXObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject");

    fso.CopyFile(source_file, target_spec, true);
   
    alert("Done");    
}
</script>
</head>
<body>
<form id="form1" runat="server">
    <input type='button' value='Save as Server Image' onclick='fnSaveServerImage()' /><p>
    <input type="file" id="txtFile" size="60"/>
</form>
</body>
</html>[/code]
