    File uploading / objFile.Write problem

    I am trying to improve an uploading script.
    The script read the post (using BinaryRead), put each item's attribute (name,
    value, content type etc...) into a scripting dictionary and then put each
    item scripting dictionary into another scripting dictionary. Then, one can
    create a file object on the server and write the content (value) of uploaded
    file to it.
    (Here is the upload portion:
    value = UploadRequest.Item("blob").Item("Value") '-- Get the content of the

    'Create FileSytemObject Component '
    Set ScriptObject = Server.CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")

    'Create and Write to a File '
    fileextn = lcase(right(filename,4)) '--Extart the file extention
    Set MyFile = ScriptObject.CreateTextFile(strpiclocation) '--Create a file
    object in the specified folder

    If fileextn=".jpg" Then '--Check to see that the file is of the right type
    (Can't use content-type???)
    '--Isn't it better to do this check before creating FileSystemObject and
    TextFile? Save server resources...)
    blnOK = True '--Set flag to true

    For i = 1 to LenB(value) '--Write the Binary data (content of file) to the
    file on the server
    myVal = MidB(value,i,1)
    MyFile.Write chr(AscB(myVal))

    Else '--File of type the isn't allowed to be uploaded
    blnOK = False '--Set flag to false

    End If

    MyFile.Close '--Close the file

    The script worked well and then I wanted to make it more generic by writing
    a function for uploading:
    '--Do the actual loading of the content of the file.
    '--strFileName - uploaded file name
    '--strFileContent - the content of the file to be saved
    '--strPicLocation - where the file should be saved
    '--strAllowedTypes - delimited string of allowed file types
    Function DoUpload(strFileName, strFileContent, strPicLocation, strAllowedTypes)

    '--Extart the file extention
    fileextn = lcase(right(filename,4))

    'Response.Write strFileContent

    If InStr(1, strAllowedTypes, fileextn, 1) <> 0 Then '--Check to see if the
    file is of allowed type (case insensative)

    'fileextn=".jpg" Then (old)

    '--Create Instance of FileSytemObject Component
    Set objFSO = Server.CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")

    '-- Create a file to write to in the specified directory
    Set objFile = objFSO.CreateTextFile(strPicLocation)

    If objFSO.FileExists(strPicLocation) Then
    '--Write the Binary data (content of file) to the file on the server
    Response.Write "Writing to File"
    For i = 1 to LenB(value)
    myVal = MidB(value,i,1)
    myVal = AscB(myVal)
    Response.Write "UNable to create file"
    End If

    '--Close the file
    Set objFSO = Nothing

    DoUpload = True '--Set return value to true

    Else '--File of type the isn't allowed to be uploaded

    DoUpload = False '--Set return value to false

    End If
    End Function

    I then call it with the same values from the original script and get an error:
    "Error Type:
    Microsoft VBScript runtime (0x800A0005)
    Invalid procedure call or argument
    /salem/upload/do_upload.asp, line 252"

    Line 252 is the one "objFile.Write(chr(myVal))"
    Any Ideas what is going on? Is there a problem passing the binary data to
    the function? (Goes through some conversion or something???)

    MAny thanks


    I had similar problem before and then I changed:
    myVal = MidB(value,i,1)

    Re: File uploading / objFile.Write problem

    After additional debugging I found out that if I am able to upload text file.
    But when trying to upload .jpg I get that "Invalid procedure call or argument"
    error on the line of the "MyFile.Write chr(AscB(myValue))".
    Further more, if I instead of writing the .jpg to the file I write it to
    the screen (Change MyFile.Write to Response.Write) I get a bunch og jibrish
    printed on the screen (The binary content...)

    This stupid little mistake (I know it will be something like that) is holding
    me from continouing the project. so please, someone, HELPPPPPPPPPPPPPPP!!!!!!!!!!
