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

In more detail please :)

Originally Said By: Jason Byrnes
  add a hidden form element to your page, set the initial value of the hidden form element to use the image column from your recordset.

in the upload file behavior, bind the default file setting to the hidden element.  

I too have an UPDATE form with several FILE FIELDS..
I tried adding a 'hidden' field, but in my case it stays hidden, so I am unable to see what file was uploaded originally and therefore I do not know if I need to upload a replacement file or leave the original..
<input type="hidden" value="<?php echo $row_WADAsliders['background']; ?>">
<input name="background" type="file" id="background" size="19" tabindex="3">
Not a skilled programmer, so I am relying on the program to create the code for me I guess...

Any suggestions are greatly appreciated
