I have code that is creating a text file that I need to FTP to a UNIX server and I want to do this using VB code so it can run over night when the network traffic is low.  Does anyone have code that will grab the file that I create on my local drive and FTP to a UNIX server!?!?!   Thanks

First create a command line FTP script as follows and save it as ftpscrpt.txt:
OPEN MYFTPSITE.COM
USER MYUSER MYPASSWORD
ASC
CD orders  'change to the directory if you need to.  remove this comment from actual file.
PUT MyData.csv
DISCONNECT
QUIT

create a batch file that executes this FTP script as follows and save it as MyBat.bat:
@ECHO OFF
ftp.exe -v -n -s:ftpscrpt.txt
EXIT

From your VB code execute the batch file as follows:
Call ShellWait("MyBat.bat", vbHide)
