When I update my file name is deleted

hi

The problem i have is when i use the update function the filename is deleted laving no link to the uploaded doc.

I have used this in the past with no real problems at all and I have looked hard at the code but can not see any obvious errors.

Iv attached the file in question.

Any help is most welcome

Employment_Profile_a.php

Kind regards

John

Having similar problem

I think I'm having a similar problem, although I might just be using the software incorrectly. My page is supposed to be updating a database record which feeds a photo file name to the database. The update function works fine, but you MUST re-upload a photo each time, or else it deletes the previous photo record. I know there's a solution here, but I can't find it.

Thanks...

arista341524: The default file field must not be set for you. If you are updating, you are getting the value of the original file name in a recordset. You will have to bind the original name (stored in the database) to the default file name.

jegoadby285710: does the value get erased every time or just when you don't upload a file?

Hi

It only gets deleted when i dont upload a new file. Problem is I'm sure i'v set up the defalt file name field correctly i.e. bound it to ha hidden field with a value of the original file name from the data base i know this to be correct as iv tested the record to see if its retrieving the name.

Iv attached the php page

Any help is very welcome

Kind regards

Hi

There is a default file name you can set, unfortunately this is the problem I'm having at the moment. It allows you to maintain the original file name unless you decide to upload a new one and saves having to upload the same file evey time you update any other records.

Kind regards

in the code, the default file field is linked to the textfield form element:

php:
'DefaultFileName' => "".((isset($_POST["textfield"]))?$_POST["textfield"]:"")  ."",





your hidden form elemeent that contains the origianl file name is not named textfield, it is named cvv:

php:
<input name="cvv" type="hidden" id="cvv" value="<?php echo $row_WAATKEmployment['Employment_CV_name']; ?>" />





change the default file code to:

php:
'DefaultFileName' => "".((isset($_POST["cvv"]))?$_POST["cvv"]:"")  ."",

Still not working

Hi Jason

I have changed the code and its still not saving the name.

I really have gone though this with a magnifying glass but just can not see any obvious mistakes.

Thanks for looking.

Any suggestions most gratefully received.

Best

John

ok, to trouble shoot, change:
$WA_redirectURL = "View_Profile.php";

to:
$WA_redirectURL = "";

so that the page will not redirect after the update

then add the following code in the body tag:

php:
<?php

if($_SERVER["REQUEST_METHOD"] == "POST"){
echo(
"SQL: "$WA_Sql."<br />");
echo(
"default file:".((isset($_POST["cvv"]))?$_POST["cvv"]:"")."<br />");
echo(
"Debug Info:<br />"WA_DFP_AllUploadsDebug());
}
?>




post the results of this code after testing and a new copy of our page.
