Export or FileCopy files from Access 2003 to Sharepoint Server

Is it possible to transfer files from Acccess 2003 VBA that will either export or Filecopy a zipfile or datafiles from an Access 2003 mdb to a Sharepoint server.

First I would like to know if this is possible and I am looking for sample code.

the following will work on Windows 7, but not on an XP box.

Call FileCopy("R:\Access\Development\Gina\Automated\STA RSprositUpdate\DocumentsMissingStatus.xls", "http://collaboration.organon.intra/sites/GCORM_Business_Analysis/Sample BARP Process Site/SCBM STARS Test/DocumentsMissingStatus.xls")

Part 2:

The file I need to save would be the daily run of agroup of files (.zip) that would include the current date.  As part of the validatation process I would like to validate the last file in the Sharepoint and retrieve all zip files from that date to present from the specified file location.  What would be the best approach to Look for the Max(Created Date) for the particular file name, and create a multifile upload process automatically.

Is there another workaround?

Thanks,

Karen

If that does not work then you will need to determine the correct SharePoint virtual  "folder".

Contact your SharePoint admin.  

On our server the upload folder is:

\\servername\DavWWWRoot\Uploads  (which works fine in the above code)

The http equivalend is:

http://servername/Uploads/

Which does not work.

Hi,

Try the code without the http in the destination like below.

Call FileCopy("R:\Access\Development\Gina\Automated\STA RSprositUpdate\DocumentsMissingStatus.xls", "//collaboration.organon.intra/sites/GCORM_Business_Analysis/Sample BARP Process Site/SCBM STARS Test/DocumentsMissingStatus.xls")

I don't understand Part 2.  Are you trying to copy from the R to SharePoint or from SharePoint.  Perhaps split this out to a separate question.

Bill

Thank you for for your input, however, removing the HTTP portion did not return an filecopy of the zip file uploaded to the Correct directory in SharePoint.

Disregard part 2.

I need to be able to Upload a zip file into SharePoint via VBA code, is it possible?  I am looking for code that will automate the Upload process from MS Access 2003 to a Sharepoint Location.

If so then try removing the http and reversing the // like:

Call FileCopy("R:\Access\Development\Gina\Automated\STA RSprositUpdate\DocumentsMissingStatus.xls", "\\collaboration.organon.intra\sites\GCORM_Business_Analysis\Sample BARP Process Site\SCBM STARS Test\DocumentsMissingStatus.xls")
