problem in ftp-download using wininet.dll

Hi,

I am using wininet.dll APIs to download and upload files from ftp server.
the APIs I am using are as follows :

Private Declare Function FtpGetFile Lib "wininet.dll" Alias "FtpGetFileA" (ByVal hFtpSession As Long, ByVal lpszRemoteFile As String, ByVal lpszNewFile As String, ByVal fFailIfExists As Long, ByVal dwFlagsAndAttributes As Long, ByVal dwFlags As Long, ByVal dwContext As Long) As Long

Private Declare Function FtpPutFile Lib "wininet.dll" Alias "FtpPutFileA" (ByVal hFtpSession As Long, ByVal lpszLocalFile As String, ByVal lpszNewRemoteFile As String, ByVal dwFlags As Long, ByVal dwContext As Long) As Long

Now I want to download the files using Partial name like "somefile*.xml"
These APIs does not seem to work. Can anyone advice me on how to do it.
Please reply asap. Its very urgent.

You can only get one file with FtpGetFile.

What you have to do is pass "somefile*.xml" to FtpFindFirstFile() and InternetFindNextFile() to get a directory listing matching your file pattern.  Then use FtpGetFile on each file in the list you got back.

Here is a link to the FtpFindFirstFile() function.  On the bottom of the page is a link to an example of how to use it.
