     This code uploads a file to an ASP script using http post. It can be used to automatically uploading files without user interaction, e.g. when you want to publish some data to your Web site periodically. There are lots of code excerpts around describing the receiving side but the sending side is mostly an HTML page containing INPUT TYPE="File" ... Simulating this by code requires some knowledge of HTTP Post and Mime. Find the full project and the ASP in the ZIP.

The project uses the XMLHTTPRequest object in Microsoft XML v2.6. The version 2.0 didn't work for this. It is part of the Microsoft Technology Preview for XML/XSL. It can be found at

Note: Due to the size or complexity of this submission, the author has submitted it as a .zip file to shorten your download time. Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
