What is the best and/or cost-effective (least coding) method to move files between PB web and a file server?

PB Web Service? PB File Service? HTTPClient?

Any tutorial or documentation or instructions would be appreciated.

Hi CJ;

   FWIW: I use PowerServer's FTP feature to accomplish that task.

FYI: https://docs.appeon.com/appeon_online_help/pb2019/workarounds_and_api_guide/ch01s03s04.html

Chris, should we code in those appeonfileservice functions ourselves? of_appeonUPload and of_appeonDOWNload functions in AppeonFileService user object in the workarounds PBL have nothing but a return value. Am I looking at some wrong version? Thanks!

Hi CJ;

Yes, you need to instantiate the "appeonfileservice" object class first and then call either the "of_appeonUpload" or "of_appeonDownload" method as required. Both methods return you a value that you can check for a successful operation.
