    File path not populating in mysql database

    Asked by lasercorp on January 31, 2013 at 11:45 PM


    I post the my form data to a MySql database. All works fine except that the upload file path only showes the file name and not the path with hyperlink like it does when exported to google spreadsheet, so now I can't open the uploaded file.
