Hi Tim,

In your FTP script use: ls (disk

This will create a file in your Current Library called LSOUTPUT that will
give you a listing of all the files in the directory you are looking at.

I have created processes using this for our EDI transactions, sending and
receiving, that run automatically all day long.

FTP file naming issue

I'm trying to automate a process that retrieves a file via FTP from a
that is named using a date/time stamp. In other words, the file name will
dynamically change each time it is created. Can I rename this file on
either end somehow? If I use GET I must know the file name to begin with.
If I use MGET with a wild card, I can get the file, but I can't specify
destination name, so now I have a file in my IFS but I don't know the
It appears RENAME does not support wildcards, etc. Is anyone doing
something similar? Thanks, Tim
