I am using the code below to upload a file from within Access using the Microsoft Internet Transfer Control. Can anyone tell me how I could adjust this so that I could upload the entire contents of a folder rather than a specific file please?

Code

Function UploadFile(ByVal HostName As String, _
    ByVal UserName As String, _
    ByVal Password As String, _
    ByVal LocalFileName As String, _
    ByVal RemoteFileName As String) As Boolean

    Dim FTP As Inet

    Set FTP = New Inet
    With FTP
        .Protocol = icFTP
        .RemoteHost = HostName
        .UserName = UserName
        .Password = Password
        .Execute .URL, "Put " + LocalFileName + " " + RemoteFileName
        Do While .StillExecuting
            DoEvents
        Loop
        UploadFile = (.ResponseCode = 0)
    End With
    Set FTP = Nothing
End Function

I get the error message : Method 'Execute' of object IInet failed (at the line following Password)

I currently call it as Call UploadFile("ftp://myftp.com", "myusername", "mypassword", "Test.rtf", "Test.rtf")

Many thanks in advance

Here is one way:

Option Explicit

Private Sub Command1_Click()
    Dim files As Collection
    Dim file As Variant
   
    Set files = getFilesInDirectory("C:\Documents and Settings\Michael\My Documents\Downloads\Test1", "*")
    For Each file In files
        Call UploadFile("ftp://myftp.com", "myusername", "mypassword", file, file)
    Next file
End Sub

Private Function getFilesInDirectory(targetDirectory As String, filePattern As String) As Collection
    Dim fileCollection As Collection
    Dim curFile As String
   
    On Error GoTo noSuchDirectory
   
    Set fileCollection = New Collection
    ChDir targetDirectory
   
    On Error GoTo 0
    curFile = Dir(filePattern)
    Do Until curFile = ""
        fileCollection.Add curFile, curFile
        curFile = Dir()
    Loop
    Set getFilesInDirectory = fileCollection
    Exit Function
   
noSuchDirectory:
    MsgBox "Invalid Directory: " & targetDirectory
    Set getFilesInDirectory = fileCollection
End Function

You may want to use mput instead of put
