setup a FTP site at the web server.

use inet in VB 6.0 to help u to upload the files over. just add in the component, Microsoft internet control 6.0 & place the component on your form. u'll be able to use it then

With Inet1
       .URL = "the url name"
       .UserName = "The user name for login"
       .Password = "the password to login"
       .Execute , "put " & "c:\"& "test.txt /" & "the file name that u want to be at server side"
    End With

if u want to make automated, just call it at the form_load. if u want it to work routinely, add a timer onto the form, call the function routinely then.

good luck.

I was wanting to do this without setting up FTP on the web server and without using a third party control, but this will do as well.
