Extracting Uploaded Filename in ColdFusion

Upload 1Upload 2
I am uploading a photo file from my C drive to the ISP webserver and like to know how to extract the file name after it is uploaded. As seen in the screenshots, I can capture the data (entered in Upload_photo1.cfm) in Upload_photo2.cfm except the photo file name.
I tried to display the contents of "file_path", but that resulted in "C:\ColdFusion10\cfusion\runtime\work\Catalina\localhost\tmp\neotmp4276945136024192972.tmp "

Upload_photo1.CFM
--------------------------------------------------
          <CFform action="upload_photo2.cfm" method="POST" name="frmupload" enctype="multipart/form-data">
            <CFINPUT type="file" name="file_path">
--------------------------------------------------

Upload_photo2.CFM
--------------------------------------------------
            <cfif isdefined("form.submit_upload")>
                  <cffile action="UPLOAD" filefield="file_path" destination="D:\home\ABC.com\wwwroot\imageupload\single" nameconflict="MAKEUNIQUE">
                        <font color=blue><h3>File Uploaded Successfully!</h3></font>
            </cfif>
--------------------------------------------------

When CF receives the upload it stores it in a temp file. That's what you're seeing.

After you use <cffile action="upload" ...>, CF populates the CFFILE structure with info about the uploaded file. To get the saved file name ie "jellyFish.jpg", use:

*Note: Because you're using "makeUnique" it may be slightly different, like "jellyFish (2).jpg"....

      <cffile action="UPLOAD" ....>
      <cfoutput>saved file name : #CFFILE.serverFile#</cfoutput>
