sorry, can u explain a little more

firstly you are writing in vb, not the vba in msaccess right?
secondly you want to use ftp, but where does msaccess come in?

I will make an assumption that you want to ftp from msaccess?
what do you want to do, put a file? get a file?

There are two basic ways to FTP with code:
1. Create a script file and then execute it using Shell().  In this case you are usingt the built-in client.
  That is covered here:
http://www.mvps.org/access/modules/mdl0015.htm
  and I can add more detail to that if you want.
2.  Use functions in the WinInet DLL.  That is covered here:
http://www.mvps.org/access/modules/mdl0037.htm
  Either works well.  Some don't like shelling out, but it gives you the ability to troubleshoot somewhat easily as anything the program does, you can verify by manually doing the same steps.  The drawback however is that you depend on the installed FTP client to handle things and not all clients are the same.  For example, the FTP client that comes with Win XP can only handle active FTP sessions and not passive.
  Either one of the above will work in VB or VBA.  Your other option of course would be to buy a 3rd party control to do the FTP.
