I currently have a program set up to keep track of clients, it's using a local database (all done with VB). The database contains user info and a picture. I also intend to create a web page, which the program enters data into, no problem. The third step is, if the user decides to add his file to my online database, I want it to automatically enter his info to a third party site that is hosting an online program for us. This third party online app gives them international support to our prog. This can easily be done, well almost all of it. The problem comes when my online database wishes to send info to the third party db, how can it send an image to them? There is no ftp, or any other means of sending a file other than through their online form. From what I understand, you can't set the value of a "file" input, so is there a way I can just send the file directly to their upload file?

Sorry for being vague, but we're in the process of making a deal and can't release any inside information.

Haha! I really understand that! I lost one of my clients just because of givving out unnecessary info! Well, I don't know the answer, just curious to see how it's done. But you said that you can do it if they had an FTP, is that right?

I just found something interesting, but didn't get a chance to test it, because I'm not at home. Look at the last post.
