P: n/a
Has anyone had experience embedding FTP client capability into Access?
What's available? API, third party, something else?

Check http://www.mvps.org/access/modules/mdl0015.htm at "The Access Web" for
a quick-and-dirty that simply shells out to FTP.EXE, or
http://www.mvps.org/access/modules/mdl0037.htm, which uses the Internet Data
Transfer library which is installed with IE.

Also see the third party controls section at the Access Email FAQ at my website as
the email control vendors usually have FTP and such available too. Also if you want
to work "closer to the metal" you can go directly against Winsock or the APIs. See a
bit lower down on that same page.
