Stumped by tutorial on how to create a file upload using DataAssist

Stumped by tutorial on how to create a file upload using DataAssist

I've created a DataAssist admin page that requires three additional file uploads.

After creating/naming the file field, and specifying the upload directory, I don't understand the WA tutorial regarding how to update the insert record server behavior.

I have one insert record server behavior for four separate file uploads. Should there be a separate one for each file upload field?
The only column available with a lightning bolt is a text field created to insert a new image name; not the file field to upload the image file.

Not sure about the proper step in the wizard to finalize the file upload.

A single insert record server behavior should be fine. There is a separate binding area that should appear for each file upload. Don't use the binding from the form. Each file upload should have it's own binding with a "server file name" option. That is what you should use.

There are no file upload bindings on the list. I've attached a screen shot.

Click the lightning bolt to see the bindings. It should have values for the uploaded files. Bind those to the appropriate column in the database.

Still not getting it. There are no columns in the wizard that correspond to any of the file upload fields. The only column entries are for the regular text fields.

You should only be saving the file name in the database. The file itself is saved in a folder and referenced on the page using the text value from the database.

I realize that. The issue is the column area on the Bindings tab in the wizard. There's a list of all the text fields in the form, but not the file upload fields. Can't figure out how to use the lightning bolt to bind to an upload field, if the field isn't there.

The bindings tab lists the column names from your database. Have you added columns there to store the upload field values? You would need to update the database and add the necessary columns.
