I have zipped files using the dos version of zip - pkzip - from VB. Pkzip is completely controlled by command line parameters that you include when you use shell to execute pkzip.

You can also try:

DynaZip32, a WinZip-compatible OCX available from Inner Media.

- OR -

CompressionPlus, a WinZip-compatible OCX available from EllTech Development.

Good luck,

kswinney.
