You can check when the file was written for the last time using
'File.LastWriteTime'.

Hi drygast,

I dont, know if I can help you, but my first question was,
what is the direction of the sending
Client-> Server
Server-> Client

And who manages this proces, the Internet is big you know, and I cannot
imaging you want to upload it on my computer?

Now there are in my eyes a lot of possibilities in your question.

My misstake Cor, I have no intention of uploading the file to your computer
;-)

I have a client where the mdb-file is altered localy, when the file is
altered it is sent to at
server (with a domain name under my control), on this website ppl can search
the mdb file (read only).
The database is still very small and I have no use for SQL-server (yet) as
the serviceprovider I'm using charge to
much.

Hope this helps a little.

Hi Drygast,
I never did this, but I would look for the Webclient class, there are some
upload methods (I use the download). The Webclient download is one of the
most simple method's there are, so I think the upload, cannot be that
difficult.
