Thank you VERY much! It now seems to be working correctly.

Between a new version of Tomcat, a new version of Sysdeo, a new version and
the fact that I could never quite get FileUpload to work in the old versions
of any of these tools, I was getting very confused. I wish I had asked this
exact question a year and a half ago when I first started working with
FileUpload ;-)

Again, thanks Martin! I am really looking forward to getting this project
working now.
