RE: How to upload a MS Word dcoument into Access f
I wouldn't put Word docs into a DB, just upload the doc (see previous posts) and store the file name in the database to allow linking from web page. If you want them in the database to search on you should be using a document search engine like MS Index Server.
Sorry,<BR>New at this.<BR>I want visitors to my site to be able to type in the file name on their hard drive and to upload the file to my server. I guess I also want to be able to store a reference to that file in my database. Thanks!<BR>John
You will need a file upload component in your ASP code. <BR>See:<BR>http://www.aspmessageboard.com/forum/showMessage.asp?F=20&M=141745&P=1<BR>or<BR>http://www.aspmessageboard.com/forum/showMessage.asp?F=20&M=143154&P=1<BR>The site that you download the component from will explain how to use it.<BR><BR>As for adding links to the database table that is a simple insert query. i.e:<BR>"INSERT INTO WordDocsTbl (Description,Filename) VALUES ('A doc'," & TheFileName & ")"<BR>If you want to know more detail on how to modify a database table you should probably read the tutorials on ASP sites.<BR>If you have a specific question then post it here.<BR><BR>
