We require a program (in VB6) to allow users (about 20 of them) to upload their files to a web server. Each user will have a folder allocated to him on the server. Each user will set up the paramters for ftp upload once, and this is saved in some sort fo configuartion file. Then, once a week the user uploads 2 database files (Microsoft Access) to the server. (These files contain information about the user's job calendar and invoices sent out). Each file will range in size from 20Mb to about 120Mb.
Once the files have been uploaded, we want to be able to write a program that wille extract invoice information from 2 tables in one of the datanbases and create a report showing the total sales for the period, and the commission due to the franchisor. (This could possibly be wrtten in [url removed, login to view], or the master user could download the data and run the report from their desktop with an app that runs on the local machine.)
