SYMPTOMS

You may select a file to attach to a Web-based form, such as a file attachment to an e-mail message. When you do this, the Web form may report an error, or the file may not actually be sent with the form.

CAUSE

The browser strips the path name part of the file name. Therefore, without the path name, the file name only references the root folder.
