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.

                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)
                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.
