We have "Temp" variable that has "C:hlrs\hrlslog.log" string.
      It empty in the beggining.
      When we install back-end(Visual basic program) we will specify where we want our data( which comes from
      the Access Database)to be copied to. Right now , we are using drive, dir list controls to specify destination
      point.But, now the client want us to use Universal Naming convention. The person when install the software will
      choose the server desination(UNC) from the list box
      and then the programm will copy automatically the 'Test' variable with the decomposed data to UNC +
      filename string.
      Any suggestions????????
I was thinking about WNetAddConnection API Call, but I don't know how it works.Does anybody has a code???

trkcorp,

Please be a little more sensitive to the fact that not everyone here speaks the same language as you.  This is the Internet, after all.

Besides, before you go off criticising people's English, you might want to brush up on your own grammer skills. :)

gima,

Try this code:

Private Declare Function WNetAddConnection Lib "mpr.dll" Alias "WNetAddConnectionA" (ByVal lpszNetPath As String, ByVal lpszPassword As String, ByVal lpszLocalName As String) As Long
Private Declare Function WNetCancelConnection Lib "mpr.dll" Alias "WNetCancelConnectionA" (ByVal lpszName As String, ByVal bForce As Long) As Long

Private Sub Command1_Click()
 'To add the connection supply the following info. correctly:
 '1- A valid server and sharename is your network organization.
 '2- Your password that provide permission to the resource.
 '3- Local name.

 Call WNetAddConnection("\\dpcnt7\share", "dpcadmin2", "Y:")
End Sub

Private Sub Command2_Click()
 'To cancel a network connection
 Call WNetCancelConnection("Y:", 0)
End Sub


Best regards
