Dear Experts,

Using a VB6 application, is there a way to programmatically create a text file within a specific folder on my web site, and then modify its content?

Thanks!

No, not per se. Cause there is no protocol for doing this. You may use HTTP or FTP to upload a file. Or you may interact with a service (web service, cgi) on your server.

So the question is: of what kind are your modifications?

That is an alternative that would be acceptable.

To clarify, I am looking for a way to do this programmatically, not manually with an FTP tool. It will be important to keep the FTP password secure and unexposed in the process.

Can anyone help?
