Hi Titus,

The file upload works fine for both IE and Firefox so i guess this is not 
browser related issue.

 I am presently doing regression automation using Twill and needs to 
complete it ASAP. As I am required to get this issue (uploading of file 
using formfile command in the Twill script) resolved at urgent basis, could 
you please direct me as to what needs to be done ( like change the source 
code to fix this issue). In this way I can contribute to Twill and get the 
issue of uploading file using twill script resolved for me as well.

Could you please let me know your views on the above ASAP.

Thanks and regards.
