You cant do <cfelseif without another condition should look something like this

<cfif value eq 1>
  do something
<cfelseif value eq 2>
  do something different
<cfelseif value eq 3>
  do something different again>
<cfelse>
   otherwise do this
</cfif>

But is there any other ways to use the above statement? I want it to be like when user upload the file into the database, it will automatic updated in the database and it's particular folder(example like 2007 folder, 2008 folder etc..)when uploading excel or pdf file into each of the folder. Below is a must include ccondition after those statement in bold and underlined.



INSERT INTO sharex_2007
VALUES('#Form.title#', #CreateODBCDateTime (Form.date#, '#Form.presenter#', '#Form.group#', '#Form.remarks#', '#Form.ClientFile#', #Form.audience#)





(FIRST condition)
filefield="fileupload"
destination="d:\intranet_info\sharing\shared_x\newsharex\2007\"
nameconflict="overwrite">


INSERT INTO sharex_2007
VALUES('#Form.title#', #CreateODBCDateTime (Form.date#, '#Form.presenter#', '#Form.group#', '#Form.remarks#', '#Form.ClientFile#', #Form.audience#)

(second condition)
filefield="fileupload"
destination="d:\intranet_info\sharing\shared_x\newsharex\2008\"
nameconflict="overwrite">


INSERT INTO sharex_2007
VALUES('#Form.title#', #CreateODBCDateTime (Form.date#, '#Form.presenter#', '#Form.group#', '#Form.remarks#', '#Form.ClientFile#', #Form.audience#)

Hi SidFishes, recently i found out that when i uploaded my files, it can be successfully uploaded BUT when i click new upload for new author again, the folder that the files should be saving inside, "overwrite" my current file that's been uploaded previously and same goes to updating. Example: Like when i UPLOAD "rash.xsl",  it WILL save the excel file to the 2008 folder but when i go to my edit page and click browse to upload the "rash.xsl" file again (assuming that i already updated the rash.xsl), and i click on the "UPDATE" button, the 2008 folder suppose to have this "rash.xsl" with the updated version but instead the files DISAPPEAR!!  But if i browse and upload another files like "new.xsl", that particular files will still be saved to the 2008 folder together with the old VERSION rash.xsl files. All i know is that same filename will disappear but diffenert won't. Want i want is to be able to update older excel/word/pdf etc files instead of keep deleting the old one then upload the new one up.  May i know why is this happening?
