Well err. You have got all possible solutions: create object in ZODB and pass references around, create object in session (which is easy, you just store the string with the data) or send the data in the form between client and server. (Your error you mention above indicates you did not really create an object or used atomic datatypes) All methods have drawbacks and advantages. Despite of having the user select the same file again to send (which would be the 4th solution) there is none left. This isnt genuine to zope but inherent to all solutions which work over HTTP. I'd suggest to skip the 2-phase upload in favour of a one shot with all the relevant data. E.g. "[ ] check here if you want this and that" in the same form as the file gadget. Especially if the files are potentially large. _______________________________________________ Zope maillist - Zope@zope.org http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope ** No cross posts or HTML encoding! ** (Related lists - http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-announce http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-dev )
