Hi,

In your template file, you can add a userform and load up an extra control, namely the "Microsoft Internet Transfer Control". You can then use all the properties and methods of this control to upload your file. This enables you to make a document that can save and send itself to, for example, an FTP site.

The code is real easy too, just use the execute method of the Inet control. For example, the following line sends the file C:\Temp\test.txt to the server kobaltnt_5 with the name test.txt in the root:

Inet1.Execute "ftp://kobaltnt_5", "put C:\temp\test.txt test.txt"

Off course you need some other code too, for error handling, and perhaps some additional things you might want to do. But basically this is it. Easy as the proverbial pie.

Great if it works, but the Inet control is known for being buggy. I prefer to make the wininet calls directly (all code, no controls) let me know if you need the source code for the api calls.

:) Can you name me one product that MS made that isn't buggie? Almost everything contains bugs. It's the amount of damage or affect that must count. Just my view on this. :)

The problem with using any control is that you need to distribute the control to each user & register it on the machine.
