    Multiple File Upload - Database

    (Laurence_Lewis) Level 1
      Hi

      I have tried and I can't work it out. I have a insert record function which enters the data into the database. I have the filepath set to a file field. If I add an "Upload File" function from ADDT it uses the file field to upload the PDF and also adds the file path to the database.

      How do I get the 'Multiple File Upload" to upload the files when I click "Insert Record".

      'Multiple File Upload" adds an upload link which seems to be separate from the 'Insert Form"

      I hope this makes sense to someone

      Cheers

          that´s true, and that´s also the reason why multiple file or image upload triggers IMHO should rather be attached to an "update record" form -- because here´s where the respective record´s primary key has already been stored and can be used as part of the upload transaction (e.g. to create a folder named after the primary key), what would be questionable when applied to an insert record form.

          I´m personally always using single file upload with ADDT´s Insert Record forms and relocate the multi upload stuff to Update Record forms -- also as a sort of "safety measure", because one never really knows if e.g. the filesize sum of all uploaded files will or will not exceed the server´s "upload_max_filesize" value and hence might possibly break the upload procedure.
