MySQLi Insert Record combined with File Upload - File name not saving to database?

MySQLi Insert Record combined with File Upload - File name not saving to database?

Aaargh. I've tried every option in the "Upload Files" section in the Dynamic Data window:
Server File Name
Server Simple File Name
etc

...none work. The file uploads to the server and on our confirmation page, despite the Save ID to Session not actually appearing in the Bindings panel we CAN call the session ID and have the correct database ID displayed. Checking the database, other form field bindings are being saved, but not the file name. Assume this is some issue with combining File Upload with MySQLi Insert.

I attach the page with "Server File Name" selected as the binding for the image field in our database:
<?php echo $WA_DFP_UploadStatus["WA_UploadResult1"]["serverFileName"]; ?>

Hope you can sort this for us.
Thank you.

Order of operations.

the code for the insert is at lines 57 - 71.

the code for the upload is at lines 77 - 107.


move the upload code block to line 56 so it occurs before the insert.

Where I'm doing an UPDATE form, what should the default value of the img file field be? Also, should the column binding be the same as I'm using in the INSERT form?

I've got the INSERT form working following your advice above but when I create an UPDATE form it's deleting the file name saved in database, which suggests that it's submitting but it's submitting a blank value.

Thank you

an image field cannot be given a default value.

you should create a hidden form element, bind the hidden form element to the image column from the update page recordset.

Then in the upload File behavior, bind the Default File Name setting to the hidden form element.

In the Update record behavior, bind the image column to the Server File name binding.
