How to create a unique image file name containing umlauts or accents on upload?

Dear Ray

Thanks for the quick reply. The screenshot is a bit too small to see clearly.
Perhaps you could post it again as a larger image.

I selected the session when I clicked on Lighting bolt.
<?php echo $_SESSION['']; ?>

But this gave me an error when I loaded the page.

Then I tried to get the session id which I am using to connect the form.
<?php echo $_SESSION['address_id']; ?>

// WA_UploadResult1 Params Start
$WA_UploadResult1_Params = array();
// WA_UploadResult1_1 Start
$WA_UploadResult1_Params["WA_UploadResult1_1"] = array(
'UploadFolder' => "../../exhibitions/",
'FileName' => "".$_SESSION['address_id'] ."",
'DefaultFileName' => "",
'ResizeType' => "2",
'ResizeWidth' => "205",
'ResizeHeight' => "120",
'ResizeFillColor' => "#FFFFFF" );
// WA_UploadResult1_1 End
// WA_UploadResult1 Params End


But this does not seem to change anything but I am not sure it is the right selection.
The original image name with the umlaut is still being inserted into the DB and the image file is uploaded to the upload folder - also with the original image name including the umlaut. I would like to be able to change (replace) both the file name with the umlaut and that which is inserted into the DB.

(BTW - I am using the mySQLi extension to generate the recordset and to manage the Insert Record)
