Hey all, I’m running into some problems uploading a CSV file. I have another app that uploads photos that works fine, but for some reason this doesn’t work at all.
The basic setup:
<% form_tag :action => ‘upload’, :multipart => true, :id => @survey do %>
<%=file_field “survey”, “filepath”%>
<%= submit_tag ‘Upload’ %> <% end %>
Controller: class SurveysController < ApplicationController def upload if request.post? #Create a survey model with a factory method
head_surv = Survey.factory("Head", params[:head]) #Upload the survey file head_surv.upload_file(params[:survey][:filepath]) end
Upload logic in a mixin: module CsvSurveyLoader def upload_file(file)
File.open(get_destination(), "w") do |f| f.write(file.read) end
Okay there is the basic setup. I’m running into 2 problems.
- When using firefox, I’m only getting a file name. ( i.e. “survey.csv” vs “/path to csv/survey.csv”).
- A hard error:
undefined method `read' for "C:\\Users\\joe\\Desktop\\Head1.csv":String
I’ve been staring at this so long my head is spinning, if anyone has any ideas I’d be really appreaciative.
