You've probably seen Web pages that provide prompts for uploading files from 
local or networked drives to a server via HTTP.  The HTML might be something 

<form enctype="multipart/form-data" method="post">
  <input type="file">

When the form is submitted, the browser converts the local file to a base-64 
format and send it to the HTTP server.

Both CGIDEV2 and Net.Data offer utilities for extracting files from an HTTP 
post, and converting them to a format that can be stored on the IFS.

Thanks to all those who have replied so far.  I am trying to determine if I can

4) The document names are very tightly controlled (CM 5.3 for iSeries is the 
5) If the document is updated, the original is moved to a revisions folder and 
the new document is imported.
6) We currently have a VB application that does this (in conjunction with the 
CM client) and we are trying to see if we can "webify".

I should be able to attach a macro that will handle the "save as", but the 
problem would be the file naming. The file name would have to be tightly 
 I have tried using 'Content-Disposition: inline;filename=myfile.doc', but this 
does not seem to affect the "save as" name (it wants to default to 
Maybe this is because it opens in read only mode?  I think it would be too 
dangerous to use a generic name.   I briefly thought about updating the macro 
with the
desired "save as" name, but am not sure that would be practical.

At any rate, I am still scratching my head and welcome any and all suggestions!
