Update form erases image filename

When using the DFP in an update form, if you leave the file field blank when editing other info, it deletes the filename from the database column therefore image doesn't show up.

How can it be set to not erase the the data in the filename column so you don't have to upload an image everytime?

You will have a recordset that has the previous information that was stored in the database. You would need to bind the previous file name to the default file name in the upload server behavior so that if there isn't a file uploaded, the file name stored in the database will be used as the default and stored in the database correctly.

Thats what I thought, Jimmy. I tried that but could find no way to bind the old data to the file field.

Do you have a recordset on the page that has the previous information? You would just reenter the server behavior and click the lightning bolt symbol next to Default File on step 2. Then select the field that stores the previous file name.
