Digital File Pro 1.1.3

I'm a bit of a newbie but trying hard! I'm attempting to use the older version of Digital File Pro (1.1.3) to upload images into an sql 2000 database from a classic asp page. Two questions; 1) i assume the DB field type needs to be set to "Image", and 2) dreamweaver CS3 is only allowing me to insert the form field into the db as either 'text' or 'numeric'. I've tried several variations in both DB and with the server behavior, but it doesn't upload to the DB or to the designated upload folder. Can someone help this rookie out with making this work? thanks much!!!

to store the uploaded file name in the database, you will need to use the DataAssist insert record behavior.

The database field should be set to text, you will only be storing the file name.


See the "How to apply Digital File Pro to DataAssist Insert and Update pages" Tutorial in the How to section of the data assist suppport page for details on using DFP with DataAssist.

File Upload Still not working

Jason,
Thanks for the recommendation. I applied the data assist insert behavior to the page after removing the standard DW insert behavior. The upload is still not working, but now neither is my insert record. All the form fields are lined up properly to the database fields, and the WA upload behavior seems to be configued perfectly??? Please help... thanks!

File for review

Jason,
Can i give you a link to the page since your site won't allow me to upload an .asp page? Not sure if this thread is secure or not. Alternatively, if you can give me an email, i will email you the page. thanks much.

compress the asp page into a zip archive, you can attach the zip archive.

the problem is caused by code order.


the code for inserting the record in the DB is before the code for uploading the file.

move the file upload code:

<%
WA_DFP_SetupUploadStatusStruct "WA_UploadResult1"
If((Request.ServerVariables("Request_Method") = "POST") AND (inStr(Unescape(cStr(Request.ServerVariables("HTTP_REFERER"))),Unescape(Request.ServerVariables("SERVER_NAME")&Request.ServerVariables("SCRIPT_NAME"))) > 0)) Then
WA_DFP_UploadFile "WA_UploadResult1", "Image", "", "../Images/Uploaded_Logos/", "[FileName]", "3", "[FileName]_[Increment]", "1024", "true", "0", "0"
End If
%>



to line 31 so that the file will be uploaded before storing the information in the database.

file upload problems

Jason;
Actually that still doesn't work. I had forgotten that i moved it below the other routine in an effort to rule that out. However moving it back to line 31 made no difference. same result...nothing happens.

ok, the forms method is not set:
<form enctype="multipart/form-data" name="form1" id="form1">

change that to use the post method:
<form enctype="multipart/form-data" name="form1" id="form1" method="post">
