 How do I download files from the Web?

I am using Excel 2000 VBA, which should be very similar to VB6.  I am trying
to download a file to the hard drive using an URL like:


What is the best approach?  I assume I need an external reference to another
class library.  I am trying a combination of MSXML 3.0 and Microsoft
Scripting Runtime and the FileSystemObject.  Any suggestions?

Take a look at the XMLHTTP object that is part of the MSXML library.
With it, you can make a request of a web site in the same manner as
typing in a URL in a browser.
