file upload form enctype="multipart/form-data - Macromedia ColdFusion

I'm upload a file using cffile upload and that seems to work fine except I need to use enctype="multipart/form-data on the form side. This isn't a problem except when I try to get the filename of the file i'm uploading by using #form.file# it gives me some file back to the coldfusion server. Any ideas on how i can read the filename so that I can insert the filename into a database? Thank you, Ken...

    Don't use #form.File#, after the file is uploaded use #CFFILE.serverFile#
    variable.
