I am building a project for a client.  I need to be able to upload files to a directory ... I was thinking about putting the path into the webconfig so that the client could just change the name latter to what works for them when the get the code...

Could somebody tell me how that would be done OR if there would be a better way to do that?

For global variable you can use the <app key="varName" value="varValue"> tag in web.config file in your asp.net project. There are some other ways also to declare a global variable. You can also use application or session objects to maintain your data between multiple pages. This is the treditional way to make a variable global, but in asp.net we can also use the web.config setting for global declaration. The important part of using the global var in web.config file is that you can change the values on the fly. Means you dont need to complie your application.

for app setting the syntax is

<appSettings>
<add key="varName" value="varValue" />
<appSettings>

to access the variable

string strVar = System.Configuration.ConfigurationSettings.AppSettings["varName"].

For application variables

'To store a variable:
Application.Lock()
Application("MyVar")="whatever"
Application.Unlock()

'to retrieve the variable:
Dim s as String = Application("MyVar").ToString()

Is their any way to put path into session automatically when the application starts so that I can just grab it so I can just grab it  from the session when I need it in the application?

During the startup of the application (Global.asax.cs), I have occasionally iterated through all appSettings and store them in the Application object for easy access. Also, you could create a strongly typed class to hold them too (not quite as generic as using Application).
