You may want to try something like this:

public void Button1_OnClick(object sender, EventArgs e)

        string path = TextBox1.Text.ToString();
        string file = TextBox2.Text.ToString();
        DirectoryInfo dir = new DirectoryInfo(path);
        FileInfo[] bmpfiles = dir.GetFiles(file);
        foreach( FileInfo f in bmpfiles)
            //add what you need to do with the file when found
            Label1.Text = "File Found";

I am reading from text boxes, in a similar fashion I think you can read from a database through your database connection, etc. This does require "using System.IO;"

I hope this helps.


I forgot to mention that I did this in C# on the aspx.cs.

I am sure it can be translated to another language if C# is not the language of preference.
