I get error 91 with the following code on the RemoteHost line why?

Dim FTP As FTP

Private Sub Command1_Click()
FTP.RemoteHost = "Host"
FTP.UserId = "Login"
FTP.Password = "Pass0"
FTP.RemotePort = "21"

Your object variable is not set to anything; there are two ways around this:

1 As the first line of sub Command1_Click(), insert:
Set FTP = New FTP

2 Dim FTP As New FTP

PS - You should really try to avoid using type names as variable names, so use Dim objFTP As FTP and modify your code:

Dim objFTP As FTP

Private Sub Command1_Click()
Set objFTP = New FTP
objFTP.RemoteHost = "Host"
objFTP.UserId = "Login"
objFTP.Password = "Pass0"
objFTP.RemotePort = "21"

Louy,

The FTP class is defined as not creatable.

Perhaps there is a method of some other object you can use?

For example:
Set objFTP = someobject.CreateFTP(<parameters>) or something like that?

You'll have to check up on the help/definition of the "FTP" class and other associated classes to find out what the correct procedure is for instantiating objects of type FTP.

Could never get it to work.  Am using IP works tools that actually work.
