  1. Hi all, I use MS Access to keep track of income at various kiosks and each day I create a text file which I would like to upload to my server and save the data to my tables so I can publish the results on a website. My question is about the uploading. The W3 schools example uses a form to pick the file and then uploads with php, as several other help sites have suggested. I already know the name of the file - it's not like a user picking one from his computer - so I'd like to skip the user interface and just tell the 'uploader' which file to use. I just want to click a button and have the whole thing done with, exactly the same every day. I think I've got an idea but wanted to run it by you experts to see if I'm on the right track. I believe the key is to assign $FILES with the name of the file on my computer, instead of getting it from the form and then using that in the move_uploaded_file method to move it to a folder on my server. But I'm not sure how to assign a value to $FILES and what other background things I may have to do to get it to work. Or is it as simple as coding $myFile = $FILES["C:/Users/me/myfolder/myFile.txt"] and then moving it to my target file on the server? I don't want to do a test on it as I realize how much things could get messed up. And I do know there are plug-ins that could do the job, but I want to understand the basics of uploading and code it myself. Thank you for your help. I thought I'd add what I'm hoping could be my solution - but I'm not holding my breath - it seems too simple. Please explain to me what needs to be done. <?php $myFile = $FILES["C:/Users/Me/ThisFolder/myFile.txt"]; // file on my computer $target = "uploads/newKettleInfo.txt"; // where to put the uploaded file if (move_uploaded_file($myFile, $target_file)) { echo "The file " .$myFile. " has been uploaded."; } else { echo "Sorry, there was an error uploading your file."; } ?>
