Problem updating database for image upload with 2 sizes

Problem updating database for image upload with 2 sizes

I am having a problem updating my database with the file name of the second version (mini) of an uploaded image file. On the update page, if I select a new image for upload the two versions are uploaded correctly and the two database fields are updated correctly.

However, when I update the record without uploading a new image the database is updated correctly except the field for my 2nd version ("mini") of the image is blanked. How do I keep the field for my "mini" version from ending up blank when there is no image uploaded?

for both versions of the image, you need to have a hidden form element on the page.

set the initial value of the first hidden form element to use the large image column value from your recordset.

set the second hidden element to use the mini image column value from your recprdset.

In the upload file behavior, select the large image, set the default file name to use the first hidden form element.

select the mini image, and set the default file name to use the second hidden form element.

That was what I thought I had done. I went back and reselected the hidden file for the second image and still no luck. This time, for the sake of time, I am going to use a concatenated name for the second file and not store the name in the database. I wanted to allow for renaming files, but it will have to wait 'til next time.

Thank you for your help Jason
