I have a Microsoft Access application running on an RDP server that is heavily locked down. I need to give users the ability to download files from a link (such as Dropbox), which can then be processed by the application (Excel for importing, PDF for email attachments etc).
I have created a form that allows users to enter the link and found a couple of code snippets that in theory handle the download (using URLDownloadToFile and the Microsoft.XMLHTTP object). However, whilst it does generate a file - it's an HTML file (not the PDF test file I was hoping for)
Does anyone know of a reliable way of downloading the actual file?
