Joe, You aren't going to believe this, but I stumbled across a fix about 5 minutes after my last note. I was idly right-arrow scrolling through the database table that I used for testing IE5-Mac to remove the extra test records, when I realized that there was a trailing space on the file names that I had uploaded with my Mac, but not those sent with Netscape 4.7x. I definitely didn't add the space myself, so I'm guessing IE does for some reason. I never would have seen this by just glancing, but I'm famous for finding flukes like this. So, I used the Trim function in ColdFusion to strip the trailing space in the imagename and voila - both gifs and jpegs work like a charm in IE5 for Mac! Here's what my new INSERT statement looks like : INSERT INTO images(title, imagename, category, keywords, comments, subdate, submittedby) VALUES('#title#', '#Trim(imagename)#', '#Trim(category)#', '#keywords#', '#comments#', '#subdate#', '#submittedby#') For efficiency, you could probably trim all your variables in one swoop somehow, but I just threw this together quickly to test. Give it a shot and let us know how it goes - if you can verify this, I'll tip-ify it. Eagle-Eye Chris ----------------------------- NO SIG FOR YOU!!!
