File Upload and Update Contents - Please Help

85 New Member
Hi Master CroCrew,

I found a good PURE ASP that will allow you to upload 10MB file to the server and the file contents such as Network, Author, Title, etc... will insert to MS Access at the same time.

Below is a working script that I used. Let's say after the file is uploaded to the server and a record created with the file contents above to the MS Access (using the script below). If I want to UPDATE that record let's say, change the Author from Mr. A to Mr. B, the new file will overwrite the existing one on the server OK however, how can I modify the RS.AddNew code to make it to UPDATE the MS Access contents such as Author as well? Thank you very much for your OUTSTANDING SUPPORT so far. FYI that the website where the original script located is

Hey hotflash,

Just a reminder, please put your code inside code tags (notice the button marked - #) This makes it much easier to read.

In order to update rather than add new, you need to do two things:

1- open the recordset and make sure you are on the record you want to update. This is the hard part, you will need to either modify the SQL query so that you only return the one record you want (the preferred way), or open all the records and scroll through until you find the record you want to update (takes longer to run, but may be easier for a newbie to code).

2- remove the "RS.addNew" line. This is the easy part, as long as the recordset doesn't add a new record, you will overwrite the previous data.

Let me know if this helps.

Hi Jared,

Thanks for your replying. I have tried both methods you recommended but still have no luck. There are about 30 records on the database. We only need to update the record that is needed. Honestly, this thing is way over my head.

Any other recommendation? There is a link to the code above, wonder if you can try yourself to see if you have any luck or not. The file that I used is
db-file-to-disk. Let's say, once the file is uploaded to the server, and there is an entry in the database. Try to update the Description to see how is it going to work. Thanks once again for your outstanding support.
