FtpGetFile parameter question

I need to get either a binary or ascii file from a remote server.  I saw postings on EE that the API call could be:

bRC = FtpGetFile(m_hConnect, sRemoteFile, sLocalFile, False, _
                                  INTERNET_FLAG_RELOAD, m_dwFlags, 0)

where I'll set m_dwFlags = FTP_TRANSFER_TYPE_BINARY or to = FTP_TRANSFER_TYPE_ASCII

I read on MS's web site that the INTERNET_FLAG_RELOAD should be or'd w/the m_dwFlags and the 4th parm should be a FILE_ATTRIBUTE_* constant.  So, I changed the API call to be:

bRC = FtpGetFile(m_hConnect, sRemoteFile, sLocalFile, False, _
                         FILE_ATTRIBUTE_NORMAL, m_dwFlags Or INTERNET_FLAG_RELOAD, 0)

What's correct?  Please assign.

Thanks.
