How to upload a file to memory instead of to the server file system?

Hi friends,

I need to upload a file to a server but I dont want to allow the client to access the server file system. I just want to upload it to memory, loop through it and save the records in a DB.
I dont need the file to be stored.

Is there a way in ASP.NET?

You can get the file stream using something like UploadContol.PostedFile.InputStream and get the text contents using a StreamReader.
