    Uploading a client side file

    I have the name of a client side file that I want to upload. What I don't have is the path to the file. What I would like is access to the windows file search dialog. One place it appears is when you click on "file" -> "Save as".

    Is anything like this available to PHP?

    Thanks for your help..

    There's no way to access the user's file system directly using PHP. The only thing you can do is give the user a <form> to allow him to submit the file to your script.

    Your absolutely correct. I have to go back to the client side and find my solution. Still need to find the path but I need to be asking the question in the correct place.

    Thanks for the response.
