here's a good tutorial for you to read on the basics of uploading files:

http://www.developer.com/net/asp/article.php/3097661/File-Uploading-Using-ASPNET.htm

to summarize, you create a form where the end user can select a file to upload. once they hit submit, you then save the file somewhere on your web server (maybe a folder called "/uploads/") and then save the path of the file to the database, which you can then retrieve later to display the info.

Read the tutorial, try out some code, then come back and asp specific questions on where you get stuck.

hi you expert
In the document you send me is not clear in where i need to put this code

Public Function FileFieldSelected(ByVal FileField As _
  System.Web.UI.HtmlControls.HtmlInputFile) As Boolean
    ' Returns a True if the passed
    ' FileField has had a user post a file
    If FileField.PostedFile Is Nothing Then Return False
    If FileField.PostedFile.ContentLength = 0 Then Return False
    Return True
End Function

and what code is in the upload file button?
