Uploading file(s) to web server

by Jay Eckles In reply to Uploading file(s) to web ...

Uploading files from client to server via an ASP page isn't difficult, and there are some tools to help you. I'd suggest you take a look at this page from 4guysfromrolla.com:

I notice in yourquestion you say "particular files"...If you mean can you as the web author select the files for the client to upload, the answer is no. The client MUST select the file to upload, and you have no control over that. You can choose to accept or reject an upload based on the filename or other criteria at the server, but you cannot force a particular file to upload on the client. Not sure that's what you're trying to do, but I thought I'd let you know just in case.

Good luck.
