    Uploaded File Location using cffile?

    newportri Level 1
      Greetings"

      I have a form users fill out and send and have the option to attach a file:
      cffile action = "upload"
      filefield = "FileContents"

      In order to get this to work, I needed to create a field in the DB named "FileContents".

      When a file is uploaded, this gets stored in the FileContents : C:\ColdFusion8\runtime\servers\coldfusion\SERVER-INF\temp\wwwroot-tmp\neotmp315.tmp

      The actual file does get uploaded to a directory folder that I specify with "destination=".

      When an admin views the form submission, is there a way to display a link to the actual file that was uploaded ?

      Something like:

      <cfif #FileContents# IS ""> 
      <cfelse><a href ="#filenamofuploadedfile#"> Click here to surface Uploaded File</a></cfif>?

      Thanks in advance
