File upload problem

Threaded View

I'm writing a small system to allow users to upload documents to my server.
I'm using Persist AspUpload for this.  I have 2 ASP files.

In the first ASP file I prompt the user for a file description and a
filename, like this ...

<FORM METHOD="POST" ACTION="sl_upload2.asp" ENCTYPE="multipart/form-data">
      <tr><td>Document description</td><td><INPUT TYPE="TEXT" NAME="DOCDESC"
      <tr><td>Document filename   </td><td><INPUT TYPE="FILE" NAME="DOCFILE"
   <button type="submit" style="width:100px;height:25px;">Ok</button>
   <button type="reset"  style="width:100px;height:25px;">Clear</button>

In the 2nd ASP, which is the - ACTION="sl_upload2.asp" - file, I simply
perform the upload, like this ...

Response.Write "<html>"
Response.Write "<head><title>St Lukes After School Care</title></head>"
Response.Write "<body bgcolor=" & Session("system_color_bg") & ">"

Set Upload = Server.CreateObject("Persits.Upload")

Response.Write "The file(s) have been stored successfully."
Response.Write "</BODY>"
Response.Write "</HTML>"

No matter what I try (Get/Post/etc) I cannot get the DOCDESC and DOCFILE
values to pass through to the 2nd ASP file.

What can I do ?

You have to look at the upload.form collection - see for more information.

By the way, you might want to think about using less bloated code for
your form (tableless), and a stylesheet is a better idea than
bgcolor="<%=session(system_color_bg)%>" - and yes, a stylesheet CAN by
