<table border="2" >
<tr>


<td colspan="2"><p align="center"><B>PROGRAM FOR UPLOADING THE FILE</B>
</td></tr>
<tr><td><b>Choose the file To Upload:</b></td>

Well...

Actually the thing you need to do is: You need to hide the default button, and instead of it put you own custom button that will call the action of the original one


I did it once...

You can either do it with css or you can do it with jQuery

here couple useful google search strings :

1) INPUT TYPE="file" how to make a custom button
2) how to customise the input file button

and here couple of website i found with it :

http://www.quirksmode.org/dom/inputfile.html
http://www.viget.com/inspire/custom-file-inputs-with-a-bit-of-jquery/

Hope it helps you,

Regards,

Daniel.
