    Can I ftp from Excel?
    From either a compiled file (preferred)
    or
    The contents of a cell

    To an html page on the net.

    Is there an ftp command burried deep within the depths of Excel's plethora of functions?
    or
    Can I get excel to launch a dos or windows based ftp command?

    Any help may get me a pay rise!

    i might be tempted to save excel as html and pen in FTP and work from there...

    I would also, but it's for a friend to update their website and they have virtually no pc experience. Is there a way I can launch a separate program from Excel? This would be enough!

    which office program do you want to open, or if thisis the case what about upload the excel wkbk and get the hyperlink to open the sheet via IE (DHTML)

    that way edit and up load just excel... job done...

    I don't need to upload a whole sheet, just some html and javascript, compiled through excel. The excel file is at http://www.hungrybear.co.uk/compile.zip if you want to have a look?

    Got it!

    Dim RetVal
    RetVal = Shell("C:FTPIT.bat", 1)

    FTPIT.bat has the commands to ftp the file to my server!

    Presto Hey!
