    Smile Write a text file which is uploaded, impossible?

    I have uploaded a text file named "Text.txt", here is its link:

    Now, i need to read and write data to this text file. To read, i may use some way, such as downloading it to my computer. But to Write into this file, i cannot find any clues.

    I read some information about uploading by FPT, but this way is not possible in my software.

    May you show me code to do this hope? Thanks very much.

    You cannot open a file for editing across the internet. You must download it, alter it, and then put it back...

    Good Luck

    Use your friends (yahoo, google, ask, answers, bing) to search for vb6 upload file, vb6 ftp upload, or any other keywords you can think of as there is a whole lot of code out there...

    Good Luck

    Sorry, i have problem with ChilkatUpload Active X

    I followed the link which Hack gave to me:

    and test it, but VB announced an error: "Active X can't creat object" at the line :

    Set upload = New ChilkatUpload

    Note: I downloaded ChilkatUpload.dll and added it into preferences of VB before testing it but it makes no changes - VB still anounces error.

    wait... Although I didn't test that code successfully, but in the code, i don't find the code which will use to log in the upload host. You can use Upload.Password, but this Active X don't have "Upload.username". so I don't understand that if i have an account to log in, how can i log in the host before uploading files ?

    I created an account in the host (which i usually use it).
    ID: uploadtester
    password: 123456

    ---> Please test this code for me, i live in the country where the Information technology doesn't develop as the world.

    ---> Pro, Help me please !!!!!
