Problem

When trying to upload numerous documents into a SharePoint library, a user does not see the "Upload Multiple Documents" link/selection that would allow them to upload more than one document at a time in a particular directory.


Solution

This occurs, because not all of the Windows SharePoint Services components have been installed.  To allow multiple documents to be uploaded at once, additional components need to be installed on the user workstation.  To do so, follow the directions below:

Click on Start > Settings > Control Panel.
