No File Chosen... update over writes the field value

No File Chosen... update over writes the field value

Hi all,

I have an update page that also uploads an image. When I call up the page I assign the current field values on the db to each input. My problem is an input type file. It doesn't seem to show the value from my recordset like all the other inputs. If I browse for a new file it works great but if I just hit save it over-writes what I had in the first place.

My preference would be... if the user doesn't browse for a new file, leave the current one alone.

Thanks a million
