Uploading Files with ASP

Uploading multiple files

One final "how-to"... Unfortunately, the file HTML input tag doesn't support selecting multiple files. However, you can have more than one file field in your form, with a different name. Therefore, you can upload multiple files using the component we built using

objUpload.Form("file1").SaveFile strUploadPath, objUpload.Form("file2").Value
objUpload.Form("file2").SaveFile strUploadPath, objUpload.Form("file2").Value


And there you have it... an fully featured upload facility and re-usable ActiveX component. Easy, wasn't it.... hmmm... maybe it will improve in ASP.NET!
