I am using the following code in my template:

<TESET fileName='c:\\Screensurfer\\HostServer\\docs\\'+web.link1+'\\'+web.link2>
Files exists returns <TESHOW FileExists("c:\\Screensurfer\\HostServer\\docs\\CaseProfiles\\CP101997000001.html")>
FileExists("c:\\Screensurfer\\HostServer\\docs\\<TESHOW web.link1>\\<TESHOW web.link2>")<BR>
Files exists returns <TESHOW FileExists("c:\\Screensurfer\\HostServer\\docs\\\\")><BR>
fileName is <TESHOW fileName>
Files exists returns <TESHOW FileExists(fileName)><BR> weblink1 is <TESHOW web.link1>   weblink2 is <TESHOW web.link2>

This is what I get:

Files exists returns 1
Files exists returns 0
fileName is c:\Screensurfer\HostServer\docs\
Files exists returns 1
weblink1 is CaseProfiles   webli

Comment Your TEDECLARE VAR for FileName is missing a length-- this will default the variable text size to 32...so, declare it with length of 200 or something and I think it will fix this...

Comment Yep, now I'm cooking with gas ....

Guess the lesson here is don't use a TESHOW or more than one variable in a FileExists() parameter!

Comment Actually, I missed that error... :)

You definitely don't need the TESHOW to concatenate the text string, since you are ALREADY in an expression...just "text"+web.variable+"text", for example...
