<input type=text>?

Don't you want <input type=file>?

Depending on the server side component that's processing your form, you
should be able to extract the filename, path, etc.  I personally use
AspUpload at http://www.aspupload.com/.  If not just hack off the first
slash (/) from the right.

Subject: [thelist] Uploading file names to a database

I'm building a UI for myself that will allow me to add images from my local 
computer to the database on my server.  I am using an <input="text" 
name="image"> form field and then submitting the information to an action 
page which has an INSERT statement.  The problem is that the input value 
includes the entire path.  Is there anyway to only upload the file name 
itself; ie. image.jpg ?
