Syntax Errors - MySQLi Insert Record + Upload Files - Page won't even load!

So, another bug to report...

Checking the code for any pages with either an Insert and or Update function combined with File Upload I note that the code is inserted the wrong way around. The WAUpload sections are always inserted after the Insert or Update section which renders them useless.

I've manually moved these around, as there is no way to do it via the WebAssist extension, and it is now saving the filename to database.
Can this go on the list, if nothing else? It's a genuine issue.

A problem remains though, and I can't find any documentation on it which is a little frustrating, but when we use an Update form and we don't happen to select a new file upload - rather we just change something in another form field and make no changes to the file field, it appears to be overwriting whatever filename already existed in the database or, at the very least, is wiping the value causing our database default values to be applied.

What is "Default file" in the File Manipulation: Upload Wizard and what should be selected there for:
a) Insert forms
b) Update forms

Thank you.
