Problem With FileExists Method Of FileSystem Object

I am going crazy trying to figure out why the FileExists method of the FileSystem object returns false when the file passed to it DOES exist.

The FolderExists method of the same object recognizes the existence of the folder containing the files in question, but FileExists always returns false.

FileExists() Method

Here is my the relevant code:

set fs=Server.CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
If fs.FileExists("index.stm") Then
End If

The problem is this: fs.FileExists("index.stm") always evaluates to false, even though I'm staring at the file "index.stm" as I type. In fact, I can open the file just fine, using the OpenTextFile() method. Checking to see if the file even exists is the problem.
Anybody have any ideas?

FileExists Method With Virtual Path

I have searched through the threads relating to FileExists, and have not found an answer (I did find one that dealt with using the FileExists method on a remote server, but that's not quite what I need to do.)

The script searches for all pictures in a particular folder on the server. The current script uses m:... as the path. The site will be transferred to a new host, and onto a shared server (so no more m:).

Here's the original snippet: .....

Filesystem Object

I have an asp template with tons of code in it. I want it to be saved into an HTML page once it is done generating the asp page. however the only way i have found possible is by inserting objTextStream.Writeline "<code here>" into every single line of html. Is there no faster way to generate an ASP page into html?

Filesystem Object

I am trying to access remote directories using the filesystemobject and ASP. This only seems to work when the security is set to anonymous. However, I want to connect to the remote server and pass through the users credentials rather than the "connect as" anonymous credentials. The web server is 2003 and running IIS6.

Problems With Filesystem Object

I am trying to use the Filesystem Object to create a folder but I cannot get the code to process. Every time I try to view the code in the browser it takes a very long time for it to think and then times out.

I have the permissions set correctly on the folder (I think) I have given IUSR_Machine acct full access as well as the ASPNET machine account. Here is my code:

Object BinaryRead Method

It became clear to me that using a Request.Form object doesnt work after a Request.BinaryRead. I never had to deal with the BinaryRead Object Method, so this is quite new for me.

I'm using a script to upload files to my server (this script uses the Request.BinaryRead). Besides the file, users submit there name and a checkbox (if checked of course). I want to use the data submited by the user, but the Request.Form object doesnt work .how can i access the tekstfield and checkbox, if cant use the Request.Form object?The answer will be simple probably, but my searches on google didn't give me an answer.

FSO Object, Write Method

I am writing a VBS File Which will Take Data from an SQL Database and put it into a text file. I am getting an error on: myFile.Write NewLine (myFile is set to FSO.CreateTextFile, and NewLine is the text I am trying to write)

I have found this error is being produced When I try to "write" this text from the database:

<p><b>Moviní On Printed Throw Blanket</b></p><p>

The Problem is on this "Square" Charecter. I used the Asc() Function and got the Charecter value as 63, and Did a replace on it and it still does not work. I don't know how this charecter got in the database in the first place. I don't know if that charecter will show up correctly on this forum. But the character just looks like an empty box.

Error :: Object Doesn't Support This Property Or Method: 'objPictureSize.Size'

Can't get this to work. I'm creating a workaround for the absence of aspJPEG on my server. I'm using aspUpload but my server only uses aspThumb. After aspThumb optimizes the original pic the file size changes and I need to reflect that change. When using aspUpload I can reference it's built in File object references but they only refer to the "original" file. There's an easy solution when using aspJPEG but not with aspThumb so I'm trying to get the "new" picture size using a scripting object with this script but I'm getting this error.

Object doesn't support this property or method: 'objPictureSize.Size'

The following code always displays 'false' in the browser window, which indicates that it's not finding the file.

Set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
response.write fso.fileExists(filename)

The file definitely exists - why it doesn't work?

FileExists And Sessions Problem

I simply want to verify the existance of a file on the server,

if the file Exists
do something on the client side
Stop executing and reload the main page (login).

To get the response of the FileExists I use a ShowModalWindow from a VBS call. The value returned works fine but only the FIRST time that it is called. Only if I restart the IE I get the correct response from FileExists. It seems a session related problem, infact the modal window has always the same session ID (unless IE is restarted). "Session.abandon" in the modal window code didn'T help.

FileExists For Networked Locations

I have been messing with FSO.FileExists for a while and have been looking into its limitations. On our server, we operate our directory in:


and inside that directory is a VIRTUAL DIRECTORY by the name of employeeImages which maps to


So saying


IS the same thing as saying


The problem is, that when I set that path to a variable, called strPath and perform the following:

blnExists = FSO.FileExists(strPath)

it KEEPS returning as FALSE. So I had it output strPath. Sure enough it was the URL shown above. I cut and paste that into a window's location bar and boom, I'm taken RIGHT to the image.

So I'm thinking "Ok, FSO is a FILE SYSTEM OBJECT. Maybe it's limitations mean that it can only look at the local filesystem? Maybe it cannot see across a networked device? Maybe it cannot work with virtual directories?" I've done some looking around and cannot find any pages on limitations of FSO.

FileExists Over Network Problem

Dim filesys, test

Set filesys = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
test = filesys.FileExists("probat08at08-dank60apzipap072905.002")

The out put is the word 'False'. However, the file is in that path. This is my first time trying anything over a network, checking files and such.

Serverfile.ext Does Not Like ObjFSO.FileExists()

When a file is local to the ASP application, I can use the following code to
test if the file exists:

Dim strFileName, blnFileExists, objFSO

strFileName = Server.MapPath( "MyFiles est.doc" )

Set objFSO = Server.CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
blnFileExists = objFSO.FileExists( strFileName )
Set objFSO = Nothing

But if "MyFiles" resides on another server and I set up a virtual directory
in my ASP app to reference to it (e.g. "MyFiles est.doc" resolves to
server2F$MyFilesest.doc), the code would return False even if the file
exists on the other server.

FileExists On Client Machine NOT Server

The jist of what i want is the obj.FileExists (how it checks for a file on the server) for the client machine.

The client will be scanning something that will put a pdf file into a shared folder on their machine (it will be the same path for all clients). I need to get the code* to pull that file so that i can take the data on the pdf.

*Code doesn't have to be ASP. i'm up for ASP, VBScript, Javascript.

FileSystem Access To Network

I want to write a script that can read and write files to a place on a network file-server. Since the machine-local IUSR is not a domain user, it cannot access the resource.I want to provide IUSR limited access to a particular place on the file server.

Can anyone help me think of a reasonably secure work-around to this issue. We tried creating a virtual directory that points to the share(using a domain account), but even then, site users can see the files (no security), but the fso (IUSR) cannot (no
functionality). There must be a way.

Arrays Of Dictionary Object Stored In An Object?

I'll admit my ASP skills are very rusty, and come seeking help.

I'm currently using a dictionary object to store a multi-dimensional array.

I want to pass this dictionary object to an object, which holds an array of dictionary objects.

However I'm finding that the array is not getting set, thus I'm having great issue with dynamically resizing the object's property for every new dictionary object I'm adding.

Can VB Com Object Used By ASP Get Events Fired By An Internal Object?

I have a VC++ COM object which fires an event. I've written VB EXE apps against it and they receive the event notification.

I've now built a simple VB COM object which uses the VC++ COM object internally.

My question is, assuming the ASP page which loads the object does not immediately exit, will the VB COM object be able to receive the events from the internal object?

Recordset Object Vs Command Object

I want to open a recordset object on an .asp page. When I open the recordset I would like to use a stored procedure that expects a parameter to be passed for the stored procedure. I will then use the recordset to loop thru the recordset, update values from the recordset and then update the database by passing parmeters to another stored procedure.

I would like to use the recordset object but can it be used to pass a parameter to a stored procedure? Do I need to use a command object to open the records instead in
order to pass the parameter to a stored procedure?
