Mike,

I explored using your option. The problem with the code was that while I could easily parse a comma delimited list of file names, this did not appear to provide access to the actual data in the files to be uploaded to the server. I am not a C# developer, however, and if the method for doing that is in your code example I may have accidentally overlooked it. But I rather assumed that was what you meant by:

//WRITE THE ACTUAL CODE TO UPLOAD FILES HERE
//BREAKING THE COMMA SEPARATED VALUES FROM hdnUpload

Without that, the code doesn't do what is needed - it just provides me with a list of file names. Again, if I am mistaken, please show me where in the example the file data is actually being uploaded to the server and I will happily use the code provided.

Otherwise I think the best I can hope for is a single hard-coded file tag that can be referenced directly in VB. It works, although it's not the ideal solution. And, at this point I honestly think I'm asking more than is possible, as dparsons has already suggested. I'd hate for you to spend more time trying to get this to work for me when several have tried already with no success, and frankly, I'm out of research time myself and need to move onto other problems.

Thanks again for your help!

dparsons,

Thanks for the additional information, but as I mentioned to Mike, I cannot continue to devote time to exploring experimental solutions. I have a functional (if not ideal) solution, and my management expects me to move onto other problems now. Despite the claims of conservative lobbyists, we government employees don't have the luxury of indefinitely researching solutions any more than developers in private industry. :D

Thank you again for your assistance.

I completely understand that, while not always the prefered way to do something, the "quick and dirty" solutions usually work just as effectively. Again, the easiest way to implement what you want to do (without using VBScript) would be to implement 2.0 and use its Cross Page Postback feature, but until you get around to that, just put it in the back of your mind ;]

-------------------------
I will only tell you how to do it, not do it for you.
Unless, of course, you want to hire me to do work for you.

2.0 isn't an option currently, but it's coming.

Thanks, again!
