When a file gets uploaded with this asp upload component, it appends a bunch of garbage code (sorry, dont know what else to call it) to the beginning of the file name. for example: 0000-00-008.pdf was changed to {1D731C09-9F1E-11D4-90B4-00E018C30B0A}_0000-00-008.pdf. Is there a way to get rid of this addition. I would use the instr method, but Im not sure if that can change file names. thanks for any suggestions.
