Currently we use an Access 97 application for our Sales/Purchasing/Inventory/etc. operations.
I'm building a little form where I could pull the tracking number for a specific order and send it to the carrier for tracking.
For example, a portion of the code for a specific truck carrier would be:
'Testing Automatic Tracking with NEMF, by CE 10-11-02.
MsgBox "Shipped NEMF", vbOKOnly
WebAddress = "http://188.8.131.52/prostat.nsf/getprostatus?openagent&Pro="
WebOutput = "&Output=htm"
WebTrackingNo = Forms![Invoice Inquiry Main Menu]![TrackingNo]
FollowHyperlink WebAddress & WebTrackingNo & WebOutput, , True, False
'Hide Web Toolbar
DoCmd.ShowToolbar "web", acToolbarNo
My question is if anybody knows the format to be sent to UPS for such purposes. I contacted UPS, but now they provide support for XML and HTML only, even though they say UPS accept single tracking requests from visual basic. (Funny ah!, but how!!)
