Can multiple files be attached for upload

P: n/a
I have a potential need to upload multiple PDF legal documents. Is it
possible to attach more than one file per upload?

No (unless the user zips the file)...you'll need to provide multiple file
upload boxes....

It might be possible to do something with an applet or activex control
though...have no idea for sure though.

Karl,

This is a limitation of ASP.NET, correct?

Why can you not have more than one upload controls?

The standard file upload control can upload only one file.
You can use multiple upload controls to upload mutiple files.

Alternately, you might want to use a nice ActiveX control to allow multiple
selection, like this one:

Karl,

One file per upload control - that's a browser limitation/design, not
ASP.NET.

You can have more than one upload control. What he was saying was that the
user will only be able to specify one file per control. A user cannot
upload C:\file1.txt;C:\file2.txt, etc. You'd need to provide the user with
two upload controls if he needs to upload two files.

Thanks Ray.
