Have you tried using nameConflict="MakeUnique" in the CFFILE tag? If that works (which, honestly, I don't think has much of a chance), you can then do whatever kind of voodoo you want to the file name after the fact by messing with the cffile.serverFile variable. You may need to resort to telling your clients to name their files something within the realm of sane. Something cries out crazy when a file is named something.

CF throws this error: The path, 'c:\..\test..txt', is illegal. Path specifications cannot include '..' Besides telling our clients to come up with better file names, does anyone know how to trim the trailing period off either before of after the file is actually uploaded so the file on our server would be test.txt and not test..txt? TIA, Ryan _________________________________________________________________ The new MSN 8: advanced junk mail protection and 2 months FREE* http://join.msn.com/?page=features/junkmail -- * * Please support the community that supports you. * * http://evolt.org/help_support_evolt/ For unsubscribe and other options, including the Tip Harvester and archives of thelist go to: http://lists.evolt.org Workers of the Web, evolt !
