inet problems

Why cant the inet control accept spaces in directory names like:
c:\my documents\upload

Do I have to use short file names.
Anybody have a clue and some sample code?

From an FTP example found at:

"The FTP Command Line doesn't allow spaces in the filename or path. To solve this problem, you can take one of the following steps:

1. Use relative paths when specifying local files (which is the option we used in the sample program).

2. Place quotation marks (Chr(34)) around the full path and filename (such as C:\My FTP Files\TestFile.txt) in the ftp command.

3. Use the 8.3-character directory name.

4. Don't allow spaces in directory names."
