I need to do an if statement based on if a file exists...hopefully with Server.mappath

If "~/gallery/" & Request.QueryString("id") & ".swf   exists
Session("src") = "~/gallery/" & Request.QueryString("id") & ".swf  
else
Session("src") = "~/gallery/default.swf "

davrob60 is right.

so, for your question... try this:

Imports System.IO


then:

'...

If File.Exists(Server.MapPath("~/gallery/" & Request.QueryString("id") & ".swf")) Then
            Session("src") = "~/gallery/" & Request.QueryString("id") & ".swf  "
        Else
            Session("src") = "~/gallery/default.swf "
        End If
