I am trying to use a form that is usually used for file uploads to obtain a  
The form I'm using is:

<form id="f1"  action="e.php" method="get">
<input type="hidden" name="MAX_FILE_SIZE" value="30000" />
select file:  <input name="cwdrf" size="55"  type="file" value=""><br>
<input type=submit value=submit >

I'd like to  get the path/ filename to the file, e.php:
echo $_REQUEST['cwdrf'];

Although the text window in the form shows the full path, only the file name  
gets through to e.php.
Is there some predefined variable that will get the full path?

It should not concern the server script, what the original path and file  
location of the uploaded file was, thus no such information is sent to the  
server. Just the name of the original file. I'm wondering what were you  
going to do with the path information. Whatever the reason, you can't do  
that using the file field, it simply doesn't send such information.

Use print_r($_FILES); to see what information of the file is provided in

The case where I wanted something like this, the script was generating a  
  report, and wanted a filename from the user, but wasn't interested in  
the file. Of course I could have used a text field, but by using a file  
field I got the browser to offer the user a file-browse dialogue. I  
didn't manage to solve James's problem though.
