Requesting data from a file field whilst uploading from it

Right, this should be quick and easy in theory: I'm using a pure upload to upload documents and update a database at the same time. If the user chooses not to upload a file (ie leaves the file field blank), I want to either keep the database the same, or insert some other text if the field for that record is currently blank. It appears that you can't just request the file field ("PictureLocationField", see code below) using "Uploader.Form" when you're uploading from it, as it always returns as blank. Is there a way that I can vary my output depending on whether the user inserts text in this field or not

If type_of_submit = "Amend" Then
objRS("ID Number") = IDNumber
objRS("Part Name") = PartName
objRS("Custodian") = Custodian
objRS("Date Last Modified") = UpdateModified
objRS("Date Added") = UpdateAdded
objRS("Country") = Country
objRS("Part Application") = PartApplication

If PictureLocationField = "" then
If PictureServerPath = "" then
objRS("Picture Server Path") = "Images/noimage.jpg"
objRS("Picture File") = "noimage.jpg"
objRS("Picture Server Path") = PictureServerPath
objRS("Picture File") = PictureFile
end If
objRS("Picture Server Path") = UpdatePictureServerPath
objRS("Picture File") = UpdatePictureFile
end If

end If

urgent! getting uniqueidentifier from database!   (257 Views)
Here's my problem. We just found out our entire payment system for our e-commerce website is incorrect due to a bug in one of the pages. The code is below: Set rsDelItem = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Recordset")strDelSQL = "Delete FROM Orders where Serial = " & Request("cart_order_id") & " " rsDelItem.Open strDelSQL, objConnWhat's happening is 'Serial' is a column in the database that is of type 'uniqueidentifier' (It's like an autonumber, except it looks like this: {84A25A73-D5E7-D549-F046-02EEF8BF739D}... ) We've got the uniqueid in a string format and keep getting the error:"Syntax error converting from a character string to uniqueidentifier"...The person who designed this portion of our site is gone and I'm left to try to deal with it but this has got me tripped up. I've got absolutely no clue how to convert a character string to a uniqueidentifier! They're the same thing. The character string IS a uniqueid from another page, it was just passed to this page in the form of a string and I don't know how to change it back. Can anybody help Cyprus

Using ASP to access remote SQL database   (202 Views)
, Have a bit of a tricky one here, and wondering if anyone could help me out. The problem involves allowing my ISP hosted ASP 3.0 pages to access and internal SQL server database. Does anyone know how this can best (if at all) be done From wat we have come up with, there are two possible solutions: 1. Configure our firewall so that only our ISP can get through on SQL port to query, but that does not provide enough security as SQL level access will send passwords in clear text (not acceptable for required security level), and this may at the same time expose our production database. 2. Create some kind of Web service (an ASP page) that locally queries the database, and have our external ASP page query the internal page (is this even possible). This would allow for the only opening up ports from our ISPs IP to our webserver for HTTP traffic. (Again, hosting the actual external page ourselves is not an option due to bandwidth considerations). The second idea seems preferable, but i have no idea how i'd go about it. Any ideas Any help or advice on either of the above two options (or in general) would be greatly appreciated, as i know it would be very difficult to not know more than i do!! Many
Image upload - file system vs database   (222 Views)
Your advice please! I have built an image upload facility, for a web project that I have developed. Currently, images are stored in the file system on the web server. However, I am also aware that it is possible to store images in the database. What would be the trade off (ie any advantages / disadvantages / known problems etc), should I decide to upload to the database instead of the file system. Is there a preferred way to where images are stored. At the moment, images are stored in folders which are named after a project code number. Immediately, I see this structure becoming out of hand (as we have close to 200+ projects a year). Does anyone know of alternative naming convention for thi

Passing an ASP variable to a database using SQL   (165 Views)
I created an ASP page that will generate a random number. I have a variable set to catch the number. now, i want to pass that variable to a field in my database using a SQL statement, INSERT INTO......I am also passing data from a form into my database using Reqest.Form("LastName"). My code looks like this: mySQL= "INSERT INTO PreApprovalDetail " mySQL= mySQL & "(PreApproval#,LastName,FirstName,CurrOrg,CurrBldg,CurrRoom,NewOrg,NewBldg,NewFloor,NewRoom) "mySQL= mySQL & "VALUES ('" & "PreApp" & "','" mySQL= mySQL & request.form("LastName") & "','"mySQL= mySQL & request.form("FirstName") & "','"mySQL= mySQL & request.form("CurrOrg") & "','"mySQL= mySQL & request.form("CurrBldg") & "','"mySQL= mySQL & request.form("CurrRoom") & "','"mySQL= mySQL & request.form("NewOrg") & "','"mySQL= mySQL & request.form("NewBldg") & "','"mySQL= mySQL & request.form("NewFloor") & "','"mySQL= mySQL & request.form("NewRoom") & "')"myConnection.Execute(mySQL)It works ok, until i want to insert that PreApp. I am hoping it is a syntax error. Oh, I should mention that i am NOT a programmer by any means.....just trying to figure out a school project.
