    How can I get the name of the uploaded file?

    Asked by Jacob  on February 12, 2015 at 06:57 PM

    Ok so on my form I have a file upload the normal one and I need to get the name of the file that is uploaded how can I do this? Because {upload} gives me the url to downloaded file. I downloaded the files for the form and uploaded them to my own website and it needs to upload to that website that is why I use the ftp is there any other way?

    Hi,

    You can use this tag instead:

    {FILENAME:upload}

    That should give you the name of the file upload.

    Let us know if that works.

    Thank you.
