I Was Wondering If It Possible To Compress A Folder To A Zip File Through VB (Used To Backup Data).

Any Suggestions Would Be Appreciated,

Thanks,

Cory

    I've investigated using the zlib library (zlib.com? I forget) from VB, but I found the easiest solution is to just use Shell() to call an external zip program like you would on any command line.

    Thanks For The Suggestion.

    I've Decided Just To Us VB To Copy The Contents Of The Data Folder To A Backup Folder And Just Name It As The Current Date.

    Thanks Again,
