renaming a file on a form that is submitted by a user automatically

    We are using a web form and we are asking users to submit a file and also submit their name on a field.

    Our HR have a problem in that end users are not naming the file as we would wish.
    We would therefore like to automatically append the users name (which is submitted on the form) on to the actual file they submit.

    Is it possible to do this somehow?

    if not within DNN - how about within the database? I wonder if it's possible to grab their name wihtin the database and append their name to the filename and store in another table/field? (although the latter solution might be better posted on a SQL forum, but just wondered if anyone knew if it was feasible?)

      Sure this can be done. See https://stackoverflow.com/questions...l-and-save for example...

      Happy DNNing!
