FileName

Hi
I m facing a strange issue with filename
I am attaching an attachment (may be a notepad file, video file or whatever)
through a dummy customer page (customer.html) using a text box on this page.

I am getting the problem that my code is taking the entire path as file name
instead of that only name of attachment file name e.g. it should take only
attachment file name.
Dim file_coll As HttpFileCollect ion
Dim en_file_coll As IEnumerator
Dim postedfile As HttpPostedFile
file_coll = Request.Files
en_file_coll = file_coll.GetEn umerator

Do While en_file_coll.Mo veNext

postedfile = file_coll.Item( i)

If postedfile.File Name.Length 64 Then

Throw New local_exception ("Filename too long " & postedfile.File Name)
Exit Do
End If
This postedfile.File Name is coming as “C:\Documents and
Settings\wfmadm in\Desktop\test AttachmentFiles \att3.txt" instead of att3.txt

Is there any way to handle it? The file can be of any type (means *.text
file or *.pdf file or whatever and also it can be attached from any folder,
any location etc.)

Kindly help me

Thanks,
Deepak

It is designed like this. FileInfo class provides a bunch of properties for
various parts of file name. With them you can easily take the parts you
want.

Look at System.IO.Path. There are all the functions (no rewriting
required) to get file names, extensions etc.

I need to calculate a z-factor based on the latitude of the ASCII file being worked on, which is in the filename. If I type in the code manually it works and reads the latitude value from the ASCII filename, but when run within ArcGIS it crashes when it gets to int(LatString)....
