Hi I found a way to retrieve binary file from URL with this method in vb but I can't find the way to use it in access.
Someone can help me, give me an example?

Hi mecia,

first of all: you are aware that this is just usning a form in Access to do what you can much better do with Internet Explorer ? I.e.: this is not a 'function' it is an ActiveX object that you put on a form, and then click a button for operation.

If I am right in assuming that you want to do FTP from code, I suggest you have a look here instead:

This is a really good source and explains everything, including some of the stuff that Microsoft doesn't document!

Kind regards,
Sven

No I just want to use this function in access, but i cannot find the way to reference OpenUrl method.

Function test()
Dim b() As Byte
Dim strURL As String
Dim SavPath As String

strURL = "http://experts-exchange.com/images/logo.gif"
SavPath = "c:\"

    b() = Inet1.OpenURL(strURL, icByteArray)
    'Write the image to a local file:
    Open SavPath & "test.jpg" For Binary Access _
    Write As #1
    Put #1, , b()
    Close #1

end function
