I have simple cffile upload that is not working below is the code:
The file is saved a test server where I work on and not my local drive. When I submit this the browser simply gives me blank screen. I checked on the destination and there is is none. I checked on the #form.AddManual# and it displayed the name of the file. Now, why is it not uploading. Thanks in Advance.
<cfform name="AddAcc" action="Maintain.cfm?MPT=Acc.cfm" method="post"> 
Attach Manual<cfinput type="File" name="AddManual" size="100" 
<cfinput type="submit" name="AddAcs" value="Add Accessories">
</cfform>
<cffile action="upload" filefield="#form.AddManual#" destination="Z:\TimeWeb\PDF\" nameconflict="OVERWRITE">

The code below works fine for me, obviously my #uploadPath# points to my upload dir. You were missing a enctype="multipart/form-data" in the cfform, so that might be it.
<cfif Isdefined("AddManual")>
	<cffile action="upload" filefield="AddManual" destination="#uploadpath#" nameconflict="OVERWRITE">
</cfif>
 
 
 
<cfform name="AddAcc" enctype="multipart/form-data" method="post"> 
	Attach Manual <cfinput type="File" name="AddManual" size="100" >
	<cfinput type="submit" name="AddAcs" value="Add Accessories">
</cfform>

Also your filefield="AddManual" doesn't need hashes in it.

It doesn't work for me. This is what I did and I created a new page with just this simple code and it gives me an empty page, no error displayed. No file also created on the specified location.
<cfif IsDefined("form.AddManual")>
<cffile action="upload" filefield="AddManual" destination="C:\TimeWeb\PDF\" nameconflict="OVERWRITE">
asdfsadf
</cfif>
<cfform name="AddAcc" enctype="multipart/form-data" method="post" action="MainCont.cfm?MPT=Acc.cfm">
Attach Manual <cfinput type="File" name="AddManual" size="100" >
      <cfinput type="submit" name="AddAcs" value="Add Accessories">
</cfform>

I tested it some more and the error comes from here. When I remove this line then it displays the
 text asadf.
<cffile action="upload" filefield="AddManual" destination="C:\Time\PDF\" nameconflict="OVERWRITE">

what does the action do on the form? If you're submitting to the same page you don't actually need an action on the form ..

Also do you have write permissions on the dir you're trying to write to e,g C:\TimeWeb\PDF\. Have you ever managed to write any files to it from you CF pages?

The action does go to same page and I changed all permissions to write.
Extra question: If I'm in my local why would I need to change these permissions?
This code still do not save anything on my drive. And after I submitted file I get a blank screen.
<cfform name="AddAcc" enctype="multipart/form-data" method="post">
      Attach Manual <cfinput type="File" name="AddManual" size="100" >
      <cfinput type="submit" name="AddAcs" value="Add Accessories">
</cfform>
<cfif IsDefined("form.AddManual")>
asdfsadf
<cffile action="upload" filefield="AddManual" destination="C:\LIVE\Time\PDF\">
