Sure. You can simply generate a HTML file and then use the Internet control to transfer it to the web. I had written a cc:Mail to web page poster a couple of years ago that would convert an email message into a web page and also automatically create a link to the new page. It even went so far as converting the originators email address into a MAILTO link and would transfer attachments to the host and place a download link onto the page.

The pages were all based on a generic template. We'd created what we wanted the page to look like and then used simple file OPEN/PRINT statements to create the HTML page. Transferring the data to the host required an account and a password, but it was dead easy to transfer the page up.

The link page was a little more complex. We'd download the existing page and then scan for the <UL> marker and stick our link at the top (so the list was in reverse chrono order). Once we'd added our <LI>... link, we'd save the file and transfer it back to the host.

Worked like a charm.

This was done in lowly *COMPILED BASIC* (not VB) and would be *MUCH* easier in VB.

I have source code to WEBPOST on my web page where you can see how to transfer a file to the web.

I can post the balance of the CC2HTML module (described above) if you email me direct.
