C sharp - file upload issue

I have a form and it is supposed to upload files to the server.
Attached is the code:

This is the error I get  "{"Object reference not set to an instance of an object."}"
ASP.NET Form
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    <form id="form1" runat="server">
    <div>
        &nbsp;<table>
            <tr>
                <td colspan="3" style="height: 21px">
                    Upload Files</td>
            </tr>
            <tr>
                <td style="width: 100px">
                    Choose a file to upload</td>
                <td style="width: 100px">
                    <input id="File1" type="file" /></td>
                <td style="width: 100px">
                    <input id="Button1" type="button" value="Upload" runat="server" onserverclick="Button1_ServerClick" /></td>
            </tr>
        </table>
    
    </div>
