Thread: Newsgroup scanning

    Newsgroup scanning


    Hello world,
    I am looking for some pointers with building a simple solution in VB6.

    Objective:- An applet that monitors a chosen newsgroup and downloads news
    items that then get stored in an Access datafile for viewing offline.

    Progress so far:- I have downloaded an excellent article (http://archive.devx.com/free/codelib/view.asp?id=353660)
    and project from this site but cannot get it to run as it uses apparently
    outdated OCX's to do the job, and they do not exsist on my system (NNTPCT.OCX
    etc.).

    Can anyone point me in the right direction for getting this running or how
    I might be able to do this some other way?

    Thank you
