I have a csv file which I have created that I need to transfer to an ftp server that is hosted.  I have opened up other questions trying to get this answer but I guess I am not explaning myself well....and I am new at this.  The file is called costing.csv and it is located on my local drive in the my documents folder.  I am trying to transfer to the ftp server in a folder named test/incoming.  I have found some code on the site which looks like it would accomplish what I need to do but it is not working. Is there somewhere that I can find examples of this?  What does sAgent mean? I would appreciate any help that could be given.  I am assigning higher points to this because I am desperate for help!

The error I belive in your code would be

lngINetConn = InternetConnect(lngINet, "ftp.mysite.com", 0 <--- Maybe this should be set to 21 for typical ftp port
