 NewBee's Network Connection Problem using VB

        I am new to MsWindows and VB and I need to write a simple code which
will be activatived by clicking of an icon to perform:

1- connect to a remote machine and FTP "get" a *.uue file via TCP/IP tools
2- use a Windows "UUCODE.EXE" program to decode it to a *.doc
3- use with MsWord

Q1? I can do it seperatly from icon command line for any of the above tasks,
    but I can not cascde the process as of the shown sequence.  Similar
    situation will be like executing a dos *.bat file.  This is not possible
    under MsWindosw3.1, correct?  If it is, you think could you tell me how?

Q2? I thought I can over come the Q1 limitation by writing a VB3.0 code which

    uses "Shell()" calls for any of the above *.exe's.  But the problem
    is: I cannot get the network connection utility, WS_FTP.EXE from
    Ipswitch Inc, to work while I have no problem when I ran it from an icon
    individulally.  Here is a portion of my code:

SUB_...
  .
  .
*  X = Shell ("...\ws_ftp a_profile:\..\a_file.uue
local:\...\a_file.uue", 1)
  X = Shell ("...\uucode a_file.uue", 1)
  .
  .
End

   The line with "*" is not working and gives no error either.  Any Hints?

        I will very much appreciate any assistance in this connection.

Thanks a lot in advance
