It's line 23: If (ftxt.HasFile) Then

You've declared ftxt, but not assigned an object to it with the method HasFile.

How do i assign an object to the hasfile? Sorry confused, as this is my first attempt at aspx.vb

I thought it would be assigned under line 16 & 17?

do I split it out into two subs

SaveFile(FileUpload1.PostedFile) within Button1_Click?

then

Sub SaveFile(ByVal file As HttpPostedFile)

No, line 16 and 17 is only your method declaration. As it is an event, you'll get two parameters here. By default, sender is the button which the click comes from and e contains the default information about that click event, which is pretty useless for most of all buttons.

When I need to guess: ftxt should refer to a FileUpload object. So you should have placed one on your form. Use its name in your code and remove the redeclartion of ftxt in line 19.
