Accepting binary data from form fields in classic asp

I have a form with text values but also has a <input type="file"> field. Therefore, I need to add "enctype=multipart/data" to my form tag. This causes the string values of the other text fields to be unreadable by the Request object. So is there another method I could use to get the text field form data and convert it to a string? If so, could you also tell me the function to switch it back before submission?

Dont use Request.Form, use your Upload object.Form,
i.e
Dim MyUploader
set MyUploader = ....
FieldValue = MyUploader.Form("FieldName") '//Instead of Request.Form

Is upload object a class that I need to load? If so, where would I get that class from?

Ok, you have a File upload control on your page, what are you using to execute the actual upload? What is the name of your upload object? Can you post the code you are using to perform the upload?

OK, so you're talking about third party classes. So if I get this, can i merely take the value that the upload object returns and convert it to a string?

Kind of, you need to be using some kind of upload component or include file to perform the upload anyway, in which case you are creating an instance of an object, you need to use the instance of this object to access the forms fields. If you post your code you are using to upload the file that the user picks from the file object, then i can show you what i mean.
Let me know if im way off here, i may have misunderstood, thanks
