When I try to upload multiple documents, an error showed (after upload process ran):

An error was encountered while processing files on the server. Try uploading one file at a time by using the single upload page.

I'm sure Upload Multiple Documents feature was fine when WSS 3.0 just installed. And it's second time i've encounter this problem (last time i reinstalled WSS). Can anyone help me with the problem Thanks.

Hi Don, two things you might check. Make sure the total size of all your files is not greater than the upload limit set for your web application. Unfortunately SharePoint considers the total size for all files and not each individual file. If you have access, you can check the set limit by going to the Application Management tab under Central Administration and clicking the Web application general settings link. Be sure to select the correct web application once on the page.

Also, you might confirm none of the files contain any invalid characters in their name (e.g. *@/%.. etc).

Really thanks for your reply, Scott.

I, as administrator of WSS, checked that the uploading didnot exceed maximum upload size. And the name of the files are quite simple, containing no invalid character (they can be uploaded one by one, but cannot be done by Upload Multiple Documents).

I've also tried on several clients but the problem came as the same.

How about the logs Is there anything on the web server in the Event Logs or the SharePoint logs under c:\program files\common files\microsoft shared\web server extensions\12\logs (There's a lot of info here so you may need to try re-uploading the files, note the time, then open the most recent log file)

Hi Zhang,

Yes there is problem with WSS 3.0 and MOSS 2007 while uploading a multiple file at a time given the fact both supports the multifile uploading.

You can upload multiple file by using Explorer View not the default view (All Documents). In this way you can use the windows like functionality of dragging and dropping a file from your folders without encountering any error and added advantage will be the speed of uploading a file. This is the best way of uploading a file to a document library in WSS 3.0 or MOSS

Thanks

Thank you, kr. By your means it is successful to transfer multiple files to server.
