    FTP from a script (VBS or WSH)

    I don't know much about this stuff... Is it possible to ftp a file using a VBS / WSH script?

    The WshShell object has a Run method which is roughly the same as Shell in VB. See the <A target="_blank" HREF=http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/en-us/script56/html/wsMthRun.asp>Run Method</A> reference page on MSDN for more info.

    Will,

    I was seeking a similar solution sending and receiving text files for Excel applications. I played around with it and found that the hardest thing was to disconnect the dial up connection after the transfer was through. I tested almost every ftp software that I could find, and decided that Auto FTP Pro from Primasoft (available <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.primasoft.com/32org/32ftpro.htm>here</A>) was the best one that fit my needs. Fully automated scheduler integrated with the software. Not much money and works really well.
