Upload it working but it is not writing file name to database.

My files are uploading, and they're visible on the web site, but they are not writing the name of the file to the database. I don't even know how it's possible that they're showing up on the web site without a file name. In every file field on the DB, all I have is .jpg. Nothing else!

I will send a PM with FTP info.

in the upload behavior, you have bound the file name to the Server File Name binding.

this is circular logic and will not work.

the Server File Name binding is the final file name that is created when the file is uploaded.

it uses the File Name setting and and the rename if file exists settings to compute this

change the file name setting back to the default:
[FileName] paceholder so it will use the original fie name in computing the final file name that will be assigned to the Server File name.

Well, I have bigger fish to fry right now. Since installing the upgrade of Data Bridge, it corrupted my DW installation and deleting the .dat file didn't help - I'm going to have to reinstall all extensions. So what you're saying is, during update, I need to bind the form field data instead of the server file?

What i am saying is that in the Upload File Server behavior set the File Name setting to:
[FileName]

I think I've got it ... it's just been awhile since I've worked with the WA File Upload piece. :)
