In an Access application the following VBA instructions return error 401 (Unauthorized) where UserName and pw represent valid credentials:
...
xmlhttp.Open "PUT", sharepointFileName, False, UserName, pw
xmlhttp.Send sBody
MsgBox xmlhttp.Status
...
Does anybody know what could be causing this?

Just taking a stab at this since I don't work with Sharepoint at all...but what happens if you leave off the username and pass?
xmlhttp.Open "PUT", sharepointFileName, False

If you receive a prompt for username and password from the Sharepoint site then it suggests a problem with either the username or password in the variables you are using.  If you still receive the 401 error, however, it suggests a problem witht he URL in the sharepointFileName variable.

I found the problem - the credentials passed must include the domain. I prepended the domain to the username and everything clicked.

I've done this before in other Sharepoint environments and it wasn't necessary to supply the domain name, so this one had me stymied.
