You could do an FTP transfer via a batch file?

Just write a .bat file that runs your

FTP -N Blah....
User ....
..... <password here

Do your file transfer

quit

then execute it synchronously.

PS - for synchronous shelling check out the SyncShell or FSyncShell (VB6 - VB5) functions that you can find in the Setup1.vbp program that you can find in the wizards directory of your VB installation.

Unfortunately, the INET control does not allow you to set the ASCII/Binary type of a transfer.

See the following microsoft KB Article:
PRB: ITC Cannot Perform ASCII-type FTP Transfer

By the way, I had nothing to do with writing the INET control... Please don't shoot the messenger...

mcrider - don't forget I provided an alternative solution that does not depend on the use of the INET control.

a930077,

Thanks for the points! Glad I could help!


caraf_g,

<As bullet wizzes past my head> I guess the point was that I was showing that you can't use the INET control this way and that microsoft has documented that fact and given an example using APIs...
