URGENT - I need some advice re Inet.Execute VB6

P: n/a
Hi All

I am coding a small app in that swaps specific files between a client and
server. All files and locations are set at both sides.

I want my app to show a file list, based on the file names, from the local
and remote machine.....

Local is not a problem and works OK. but I am trying ::
Form1.getFile.FileName = Inet1.Execute("ftp://ftp.server.net", "DIR") and I
keep getting a Type Mismatch error.

Any help would be appreciated.... I have to get this finished by Tuesday
!!!!

TIA

Well, it's Tuesday so I guess it's too late now huh.

Just some advice on posting, newsgroups are really not the
place for urgent help as it can take a few days to answer
some questions.

Trying to draw attention to you post by using capitals or
URGENT etc in the subject line is considered rudem and just
tends to annoy people and is more likely to result in less
people looking at your problem.

Also late, but .Execute() doesn't actually return anything...
You will most likely want to use .OpenURL() instead.
