Default Problem with: input type=file

Good afternoon all.

This more of a basic html question, but here goes.

I'm having trouble with code that captures a fully qualified file name from my screen:
inputtype="file" name="fleAttach1" size="60

In the past (during the ie7 days), this code worked no problem. I'd browse for a file like this: \\cshweb2\cshwww\stuff\myFile.pdf and the fully qualified file name would be passed to my vbscript when i edited the form.

however now (i think after upgrading to ie8) only myFile.pdf is passed to my vbscript when i edit the form.

what is going on? am i doing something wrong?

thank you for your help.

Take a look at the section "File Upload Control".

Where would we be without search engines..... ;-)

Hope this helps.
