• Subject: CL variables in FTP commands

Good afternoon everyone.
I was wondering if it is possible to use CL variables in a batch FTP
session. I need to transfer a file from our AS/400 to one of our NT servers
without any user intervention. The file to be put on the server is to be
named using the files last change date. So the PUT command would look
something like this
        put mylib/myfile.mymbr mmddyyyy.raw

I know I can get the files change date using the CL command RTVOBJD,
something like this:
        RTVOBJD    OBJ(MYLIB/MYFILE) OBJTYPE(*FILE) CHGDATE(&CHGDATE)
And I know the FTP commands would be contained in a source physical file. 

So can I use the CL variable &CHGDATE in the PUT command contained in the
PF? My guess is it would look like this:
        put mylib/myfile.mymbr &CHGDATE.raw

Can you do that? If not, is there another way to do this? Any input is
appreciated.
