You could change the chem code via a program that
wrote to your input file before you called the FTP

You can not FTP to/from a network site via FTP server,
as that is not allowed.  I'm thinking symbolic link, and that
would work if you had a Linux FTP server, you could
just set up a symbolic link to the network directory.

Normally, though, you would ftp to the ftp directory,
which is set up in the FTP server, in our FTP server
I have it pointing to C:\PUBLIC\FTP which means
that you can only FTP files to/from that directory, and
any directory you had rights to under it (such as C:\public\ftp\mydir).

Would it be possible for you to either:
1. Set up your FTP root path to \\AUSTEEL.AUSTEEL.COM\HOME
or 2. FTP it to your real FTP file path, then move the file once it's
