What you specify here regarding FTP seems to be a lot of work.

By the way I forgot to mention that I am developing in VB and using
OLE DB driver for Interbase/Firebird from ZStyleGroup. (Sorry for

I am not that great a programme otherwise I would not have posted
such a stupid question on this forum.

Thanks for suggestion.
