    Private Sub Command1_Click()
    Dim URL As String
    Dim Flags As Long
    Dim TargetFrame As String
    Dim PostData() As Byte
    Dim Headers As String
    URL = "http://myserver.com/" ' A URL that will accept a POST
    Flags = 0
    TargetFrame = ""
    PostData = "function=pic2&username=jct&password=ram4&pict=temp.gif&pict_to=0&pict_type=0"

    IT's not that easy... and it's not that easy for a reason... If it was then anyone could create a website, then create an app with a WB and scrape files off anyone's computer w/o them knowing. It would be a security nightmare. Your value for pic in the post data is incorrect. It isn't going to be the file name... it would actually be the file itself. But again it's not that simple, as there's other data to go along with it: name, size, etc. But... I don't think it's possible to post a file in the first place like this because it would be a security issue if you could... I also think that's the wrong content type header to use when posting files. Not sure though.

    WebBrowser is a browser and browsers do not upload data to a website unless there is some application on the server to allow uploading in which case it is not the browser that does the uploading. I'm assuming the website is your website so if it is then consider using FTP to upload.
