Filename with multiple dots

Filename with multiple dots

I have a client that uses multiple . in their filenames:

Pang 814 A3.3.8 UNIT 2ST SIDE EL.pdf

When I upload the file via DFP and update the record, it is truncating the .pdf. Is there a way I can make this work.

I'm using DFP 2.0 for ASP.

Digital File Pro version 2 does not support ASP. Are you using version 1 for this?

I just tested version 2 using PHP (since its the only supported language) and was able to upload successfully using a pdf with the name you provided.

Sorry, you are correct. It is v 1.1.1

I'm not seeing the truncation of the .pdf when I test this. Where are you seeing this truncation occur? This doesn't happen when you don't have multiple "." in a file name?

Are you using ASP JS or ASP VB?

One thing you might want to do is upgrade to the latest release for version 1. Version 1.1.3 is out, which has some bug fixes.

ASP VB.
Files with only one . upload fine.
Any file with multiple . in the filename upload without the extension. It strips it from the file name and it strips it from the inserted text.

1.1.3 makes no difference at all.
