If I want to allow a customer to upload files within my form page how can I accomplish this so that they can attach the file before submitting then the item's get placed into a folder with the corresponding Record ID as the folder name. ( so that the uploaded files and the quote request can be matched up)??

Lastly I'll be using FM5 Unlimited and FM5 Server on the same cpu. Is this all right or should I be using anything else in front of it or on the same server machine?

Thank you in advance. crazy.gif" border="0

Hi, we're using something like this on our new Intranet build where we have a Filemaker database that allows users to post messages and attach pictures to them. You can see the prototype running at www.william-reed.net/newnet/ Basically, we open an upload window, then have the user put the file name in form.

As it's all dummy data, you can try a post yourself. The news that is showing on the home page is made from the "announcements" link. Feel free to look at the page code. I'm using a server-side file upload page, but it's also possible to use a javascript to open an upload window (the javascript's still in the new record page code)

Hope this helps, Jeff

oooooh you're right! I had some as multi-user, but lucky they're just test copies - the real ones are behind the firewall and I'm going to move them off the web server before we go live.

Also, I think I have an address detect on the site which meand you need a username to get into the Intranet stuff. To try out you can use my name - jeff spall- (the passwords aren't active yet)

Thank for the warning! Jeff
