If I understand your question correctly, you need to create a link that points to a specific document library to upload documents. I would do the following for non-code solution:

  1. Go to the document library
  2. Right click on the link that says *Add Document * and then select *Copy shortcut *
  3. Create a link and paste the text copied from the previous step.
  • no..I dont mean that. I just want to avoid user's mistakes to overwrite existing file if name is same.! If you check, there is by default check-box (checked), while uploading the document. in other statement i don't want to let user overwrite any existing file if name is same.
