    How can I get the full path of a file?

    curtkauf
      I have an application where I am using a remote webservice. The webservice method I'm calling requires a full path of a file. The webservice takes the file and loads it into a SQL database, performs some calculations, and creates a text file on the users local drive with the results. The FileReference class doesn't provide the full path. Surely someone has come across this and has found a solution. My thought shave always been that if ASP pages can do it Flex apps will too. Please don't tell me I was wrong. Thanks for any help you can give me!!!

          If the webservice is creating the file, why doesn't it know where it put it?

            I sorry, I ddn't make myself clear. There is an original file that I need to allow the user to locate and then there is an output file. Input file and an output file and the first one can be anywhere. Surely there is a way to get file paths. Thanks so much.
