Unfortunately, I can think of quite a few very different ways to interpret your question.

Please be more explicit in your description and let me know anything you've already tried.

<input name= "toto" type="file">

I want to put directly the location and name of the file with automation without typing it in the input.

I try with

_IEFormElementSetValue($fichier1,"C:\Documents and Settings\Patrick\Bureau\dpsi.xlt")
and nothing happen neither an error Edited by LOULOU

Oddly, this appears to be a limitation of the "input type=file" element. I found a comment that "While the [value] property accepts new value assignments in some browsers, only values assigned as a result of a user's explicit file menu choice get submitted." It does not appear that IE will even accept a value assignment programatically. The best I can come up with at the moment is to focus on the element and use AutoIt Send:

#include <IE.au3>

; Create a browser and HTML on the fly...
$oIE = _IECreate()
_IEBodyWriteHTML($oIE, "<form action='bogus.html' name='myform'><input name='toto' type='file'><input name='Submit' type='submit'></form>")

$oFrom = _IEFormGetObjByName($oIE, "myform")
$oInput = _IEFormElementGetObjByName($oFrom, "toto")

$oInput.focus
Send("C:\file.txt")

<input name= "toto" type="file">
