Sorry guys. I figured this one out on my own. I just wrote an RPG program that creates the PF which contains the FTP subcommands. That way I could pass &CHGDATE as a parameter. -----Original Message----- From: Ray, Adam [SMTP:email@example.com] Sent: Thursday, January 25, 2001 2:56 PM To: 'MIDRANGE-L@midrange.com' 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.
