writing file extension twice -- .mp3.mp3

Hey guys,

this is driving me nuts....
uploading an mp3 file uploads OK but the extension is repeated

ex. jaimes got a gun.mp3.mp3

I choose the file field for the filename in DFP and the serverFileName in the insert behavior for the database field..
get repeating extension

If I use the serverFilename in DFP it throws an error for unidentified variable..
and I ONLY get the extension .mp3 for the filename and it is uploaded ok

for the file name in the upload behavior, use:


that will tell it to use the name of the file being uploaded.

Thanks Jason
that would have been the default

I added another field and deleted the first to reset the behavior...
it works!
