I am creating a ASP (Classic) application that is basically a Windows Explorer style app used to upload and store files on the fileserver, for some users. Other users will only be able to download those files.
The app is database driven I keep track of virtual folders and permissions in the database, the files are stored in a central directory by the FileID (i.e. 13.doc, 47.pdf, etc.).
When someone is going to download a file I would like to take the filename on the system (for example 47.pdf) and change it to the file description (i.e. Outline.pdf) before the user is prompted to open the file or save it on their computer.
Hopefully this post makes sense. Is this even possible?
BTW: The ASP server is a third-party server so I can't install anything on it.
