Title
HOWTO: Checking Existence and Renaming Upon Upload
Problem
I want to preserve the original filename supplied by the user when uploading, but I also want to check to see if the file already exists in my upload directory. If it does exist, I want to give the user the chance to rename the file or cancel the upload.
Solution
This is a commonly requested function. While simple on the surface, it often is tricky in practice because of the stateless, page-based nature of the Web.

It consists of a few ASP pages that illustrate how to do this. The starting page should be renform.asp.
