Does anyone have simple sample code in VB that will allow me to download a file from the AS/400 using FTP.
The file name on the AS/400 is known and will not change and also the file name on the PC will not change as well. It's just a strait copy without any user intervention.

Can someone please help me.

Thanks.

Use something like this


Dim WshShell, curDir, wShell, file

Set wShell = WScript.CreateObject("Shell.Application")
Set WshShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
Set FileSystem = WScript.CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set OutPutFile = FileSystem.OpenTextFile("sometextfile.txt",2,True)

file = InputBox ("Which file will you upload?","File adder")

OutPutFile.WriteLine "open [ftp server]" 'Connects to the ftp server
OutPutFile.WriteLine "[username]"
OutPutFile.WriteLine "[password]"
OutPutFile.WriteLine "Lcd [folder]"
OutPutFile.WriteLine "Get " & file 'Adds the file to the ftp server
OutPutFile.WriteLine "bye" 'Quit.
OutPutFile.Close



Set wShell = Nothing
Set WshShell = Nothing
Set FileSystem = Nothing
Set OutPutFile = Nothing
WScript.Quit(0)

Set WshShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
Set FileSystem = WScript.CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set OutPutFile = FileSystem.OpenTextFile("sometextfile.txt",2,True)

file = InputBox ("Which file will you upload?","File adder")

OutPutFile.WriteLine "open [ftp server]" 'Connects to the ftp server
OutPutFile.WriteLine "[username]"
OutPutFile.WriteLine "[password]"
OutPutFile.WriteLine "cd [folder]"
OutPutFile.WriteLine "put " & file 'Adds the file to the ftp server
OutPutFile.WriteLine "bye" 'Quit.
OutPutFile.Close

curDir = WshShell.CurrentDirectory
wShell.Open curDir & "\batfile.bat"

Thanks for your prompt response.

When I try this I get the message "Expected variable or procedure, not module" on the line that read "Set FileSystem = WScript.CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")"

Unsure what to do this this?

Thanks.
