I have coldfusion page on a remoteserver and in that i have javascript that loads a file from local machine into server.

code i have -

var adoStream = new ActiveXObject("ADODB.Stream");
//adoStream.Mode = 1; // read only , 3 read write
adoStream.Type = 1; // adTypeBinary
adoStream.Open();
adoStream.LoadFromFile(filename); <--- THIS IS WHERE THE ERROR
OCCUR

Load from file does not work

The remote server is in the Intranet Zone (added through security
settings), and "Access data sources across domains" is set to Enable in
Miscellaneous Security Settings.

I have also added that intranet website to trusted sites...

Pl help

Now, I just have to ask?
You have changed the  code from
adoStream.LoadFromFile(filename);
objStream.LoadFromFile "C:/Guru/Meditation/Chant17.txt"


SElvol
adoStream.LoadFromFile(filename);
 
Look this style with the acctual file.
objStream.LoadFromFile "C:/Guru/poop/ant17.txt"

Open in new window
