fso Question

(OP)
Hello all.
First question.
I am using FSO to loop through a folder and get the names of files. I want to upload all of the filenames to my DB.
I cannot seem to figure out how to loop through and do this.
Here is my code:

CODE -->

<%
  Dim strPathInfo, strPhysicalPath
  strPathInfo = Request.ServerVariables("PATH_INFO")
  strPhysicalPath = Server.MapPath(strPathInfo)

  Dim objFSO, objFile, objFileItem, objFolder, objFolderContents

  Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
  Set objFile = objFSO.GetFile(strPhysicalPath)
  Set objFolder = objFile.ParentFolder
  Set objFolderContents = objFolder.Files
%>
<HTML>
 <HEAD>
  <TITLE>Display Directory</TITLE>
 </HEAD>
<BODY>
<TABLE cellpadding=5>
 <TR align=center>
  <td align=left>File Name</td>
  <td>File Size</td>
  <td>Last Modified</td>
</TR>
<%
  For Each objFileItem In objFolderContents
    Response.Write "<TR><TD align=left>"
    Response.Write objFileItem.Name 
    Response.Write "</TD><TD align=right>" 
    Response.Write objFileItem.Size 
    Response.Write "</TD><TD align=right>" 
    Response.Write objFileItem.DateLastModified 
    Response.Write "</TD></TR>"
    
  Next
%>

</TABLE>
</BODY>
</HTML> 
I have attempted to put a loop within the for next statement as this:

CODE -->

<%
  Dim strPathInfo, strPhysicalPath
  strPathInfo = Request.ServerVariables("PATH_INFO")
  strPhysicalPath = Server.MapPath(strPathInfo)

  Dim objFSO, objFile, objFileItem, objFolder, objFolderContents

  Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
  Set objFile = objFSO.GetFile(strPhysicalPath)
  Set objFolder = objFile.ParentFolder
  Set objFolderContents = objFolder.Files
%>
<HTML>
 <HEAD>
  <TITLE>Display Directory</TITLE>
 </HEAD>
<BODY>
<TABLE cellpadding=5>
 <TR align=center>
  <td align=left>File Name</td>
  <td>File Size</td>
  <td>Last Modified</td>
</TR>
<%
  For Each objFileItem In objFolderContents
  
sql="insert into filenames (FILENAME_) VALUES ('"&objFileItemAacute&"')"
CONN.EXECUTE(SQL) Response.Write "<TR><TD align=left>" Response.Write objFileItem.Name Response.Write "</TD><TD align=right>" Response.Write objFileItem.Size Response.Write "</TD><TD align=right>" Response.Write objFileItem.DateLastModified Response.Write "</TD></TR>" Next %> </TABLE> </BODY> </HTML>
This gives me "Object required: ''" error.

How can I get this to loop through and input the data to the DB??

Thanks,
Penguin
Please keep in mind that I am using classic ASP with MySQL database. Not sure if that information helps or not.

RE: fso Question

Should it not be just objFileItem.Name in the sql?

You are correct. Sometimes you cannot see the forest for the trees.
Many thanks!!

RE: fso Question

I am also working with MySQL database. It works OK.
