I cant get the save to the FTP to work.. any insight?
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

All declorations are good.
There is a lot of other code but I have cut out the main problem area and "x" out the info for security perposes, hope you understand

Sub New_Macro()
    Dim oMasterDoc As Document
    Dim oTempDoc As Document
    Dim oFSO As Object
    Dim sTempFile As String
    Dim sTempPath As String
    Dim hConnection As Long
    Dim hOpen As Long
    Dim lRC As Long
    Dim sFTP1 As String
    Dim sFTP2 As String
    Dim sFTPServer As String
    Dim sFTPDir As String

    'Get reference to master document
Set oMasterDoc = ActiveDocument
sTemplate = Environ("Temp") & "\test" & oMasterDoc
oMasterDoc.Save
oMasterDoc.SaveAs sTemplate


Set oFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
sTempFile = oFSO.GetTempName & ".doc"
Set oFSO = Nothing
sTempPath = Environ("Temp") & "\" & sTempFile
If Dir(sTempPath) <> "" Then
    Kill (sTempPath)
End If


sFTP1 = "x"
sFTP2 = "xx"
sFTPServer = "xxx"
sFTPDir = "xxxx"

hOpen = InternetOpen(works great)
hConnection = InternetConnect(works great)
lRC = FtpSetCurrentDirectory(works great)

 
 'Upload the file - this is where I am having the problem.

lRC = FtpPutFile(hConnection, sTempath, sTempFile, FTP_TRANSFER_TYPE_BINARY, 0)
If lRC = 0 Then
       Err.Raise Err.LastDllError, "FTP", "Unable to save the file to the FTP Server."
End If
       

    InternetCloseHandle hConnection
    InternetCloseHandle hOpen

End Sub

This is the Word area, so can you help us out by telling us which other libraries you are referencing?

BTW, the variables whose value settings you have set to "x..." don't appear to be used anywhere, so you could have left them out altogether.

Also what symptoms are you getting - VB error message, hang, your error message? If it's your error message, what is the value of Err.LastDllError

"wininet.dll" is the only Lib I am referencing.

The "x" variables are used in the: hConnection = InternetConnect
Sorry, for got to cut them out because i didn't include the InternetConnect code... that is working fine so no need to look over that.

The error message is Error: 87 = One of the parameters was invalid.

My assumption is that it is either sTempath or sTempFile.

Thanks

Are you using Option Explicit? Probably not, because if you were, you would get a Compile error, telling you that the  variable sTempath is not defined.

You can make the editor add this automatically to new code and form modules at creation time by making sure that the Tools/Options, Edtor tab, Required Variable Declaration checkbox is ticked.

Your correct.  I did have Option Explicit but I took it out.  What should sTempath represent.  I have difined it as a string previously.  What should I do to solve this problem?

thanks

I think that it should be a string. You have simply misspelt it.

your right.... hahaahhaaahaha...

Now I am not getting the compile error...

Thanks for the help

I'm very pleased about that.
You can make Word VBA automatically put Option Explicit in each new module via Tools/Options, Editor tab. Tick the 'Require Variable Declaration' checkbox.
