Hi experts,

I have an application that some users are running on the field. The application is a quote application. What I would like to acomplish is that when the application starts, it could check a table over the internet and if this table is newer that the one in the laptop it will replace it. The table is small table, it can even compressed and have it as a zip file.

Thanks,

* my internet function
FUNCTION Internet
DECLARE SHORT InternetGetConnectedState IN wininet.Dll;
   INTEGER @lpdwFlags, INTEGER dwReserved
LOCAL lConnected
lConnected = .F.
lpdwFlags = 0
IF InternetGetConnectedState (@lpdwFlags, 0) = 1
   MyFTP=CREATE('wwFTP')
   ConnectResult=MyFTP.FTPConnect('myftpsite',"myftpuser","myftppassword")
   FTPFound=(ConnectResult=0)
   lConnected = .T.
ENDIF
RETURN lConnected

   RemoteFileFound=.F.
   DIMENSION RemoteArray(1,4)
   ADIRResult=MyFTP.aFTPDIR(@RemoteArray,"ftpfolder/ftpfile.dbf")
   IF ADIRResult>0
      RemoteFileFound=.T.
      RemoteFileSize=RemoteArray(1,2)
      RemoteFileDate=TTOD(RemoteArray(1,4))

localfile.dbf was just an example.  Use any folder/filenames you want.
