I need to FTP files from my local server to a remote site. I have read, on this site and throughout the web, that I need to use Internet Transfer Control  Active X objects in order to achieve this. I searched the list on objects found in Tools -> References and the closest thing I can find is Microsoft Internet controls.
I attempted to load the Microsoft Internet controls but inet remained unrecognized. How do I load Internet Transfer Control in access 2002; Or what do I need to do to FTP if this is not possible?

ITC is MSINET.OCX (you will likely have to browse for it)...however... ITC is only licensed if you have VB Studio or maybe Access With Developer extensions...

The add-in this site provides is for Access 97 and it will not allow me to add this to later versions of Access. Can you give me a step by step description of how i can load ITC to access.

open a window in code view

go to tools > references >browse for MSINET.OCX in system32 click on it click ok and it will be available in the More Controls icon in your toolbox

however as I said...
 ITC is only licensed if you have VB Studio or maybe Access With Developer extensions...

If you don't have either, you will get a You Don't have a License error

and btw...

you CAN use the code for versions higher than 97

"To use this functionality in Microsoft Access 2000 or higher, please import all the classes from the addin (which does not have the tables required for a typical Access addin) in your own Access project. To use the classes, just refer to them with the 'InetTransferLib.' prefix (eg: Dim objHTTP As HTTP)"  - http://www.mvps.org/access/modules/mdl0037.htm
