I have created a PDF form using Adobe's LiveCycle designer that submits the pdf form to a URL that I assign.

What I need to do is be able to accept this file on our IIS 6 / W2k3 webserver using an .ASP page and save it on the server.

Thanks for the answer but I'm looking for a way in Classic ASP instead of .NET.

In the past I used a package called SAFileup in classic ASP

There may be a binary way to do it natively in IIS6, but I never got that far.  Sorry

After searching around I found a way to do it.  Here is the code:
<%
response.buffer = True
 
totalsize = request.totalbytes
 
set objADO = server.createobject("adodb.stream")
objADO.type = 1
objADO.open
 
	objADO.Write Request.BinaryRead(totalsize)
	objADO.Position = objADO.Size
	objADO.savetofile "c:\webs\docs\testpdf.pdf"
 
objADO.close
set objFSO = nothing
%>

Open in new window

You might have to chunk that for larger files.  Look into it more.

Glad you found it.
