Hi there,

If you're using classic ASP, you'll need a third party component to this (Microsoft provides on as well, but it sort of sucks).

One component I have used a couple if times is the Dundas upload control. It's free and you can download it from this location. It comes with full documentation and sample code, so getting it to work shouldn't be too hard.

The only downside is that you provider / ISP needs to support it as well. If you're running your own server, than this is not a problem.

There are "pure VBScript" implementations possible as well, but they are a lot trickier to get to work. This Dundas thingy will do all the hard work for you.

It's usually recommended to save the image file to disk, and just store its path / location in the database.

Cheers,

Imar

extention to Imar...
to deal with long data type like image,ntext types
you could use ADO appendchunk,getchunck field methods to store/read images ...

using appendchunck method as a way to fill image field in database.. it would be bad solution as the database will grow up and response will be worse, so uploading files to certain path would be better

Hi Ian,

I am not sure what you're asking here.

Are you asking how to integrate this code into your VP-ASP behavior? In that case, I can't help because I don't know VP-ASP.

If you're asking something else, can you clarify your question and explain in more detail what it is you're having problems with?

Cheers,

Imar
