This sounds complicated! I missed the beginning of this thread. Is this about not easily being able to find files on your computer to upload? Have you tried using Path Copy? It adds an option to the context menu to copy the full path and name of a file to the clipboard, instead of copying the actual file itself. Then you can just paste it into the upload field and accept, without having to browse for the filename. It saves me a lot of time! Path Copy can be downloaded from: www.jfwlite.com And if this wasn't the issue in question, please forgive me! I have entirely too much mail.
