Hi all,
I have a requirement where I have to FTP a file from mainframe to windows daily. The source is a GDG generation and the destination should be something like this "FileYYYYMM" where "YYYY" is current year, "MM" is current month and "DD" is current day.

After some research in google I could write the below script to prepare the destination file name which has the dynamic date in it, now I am not able to use this variable in the ftp GET command. Can some one help me on this.

Code:
@echo off&SETLOCAL

FOR /f "tokens=1-4 delims=/-. " %%G IN ('date /t') DO (call :s_fixdate %%G %%H %%I %%J)
goto :s_print_the_date

:s_fixdate
if "%1:~0,1%" GTR "9" shift
FOR /f "skip=1 tokens=2-4 delims=(-)" %%G IN ('echo.^|date') DO (
    set %%G=%1&set %%H=%2&set %%I=%3)
goto :eof

:s_print_the_date
echo Month:[%mm%]  Day:[%dd%]  Year:[%yy%]
ENDLOCAL&SET mm=%mm%&SET dd=%dd%&SET yy=%yy%

SET FileName=file

FOR %%Y IN (%YY%)   DO SET FileName=%FileName%%%Y
FOR %%Z IN (%MM%)   DO SET FileName=%FileName%%%Z
FOR %%X IN (%DD%)   DO SET FileName=%FileName%%%X

ftp -s:ftpMFtoWN.txt test.mainframe.com


The ftpMFtoWN.txt is something like this

Code:
Username
pwd
get 'TEST.ABCD.FILE(0)'  filename
bye

Not sure what this has to do with TSO/ISPF...

It looks like you are determining what the file name should be, but not doing anything with it. You need to re-create the ftpMFtoWN.txt file each time. And use the actual file name instead of the text of 'filename'

Thanks for the reply...Never mind me posting it here

I just figured out the answer. This will do what I wanted

Code:
@echo off&SETLOCAL

FOR /f "tokens=1-4 delims=/-. " %%G IN ('date /t') DO (call :s_fixdate %%G %%H %%I %%J)
goto :s_print_the_date

:s_fixdate

IF "%1:~0,1%" GTR "9" shift
FOR /f "skip=1 tokens=2-4 delims=(-)" %%G IN ('echo.^|date') DO (set %%G=%1&set %%H=%2&set %%I=%3)
goto :eof

:s_print_the_date

ENDLOCAL&SET mm=%mm%&SET dd=%dd%&SET yy=%yy%

FOR %%Y IN (%YY%)   DO SET CurrDate=%CurrDate%%%Y
FOR %%Z IN (%MM%)   DO SET CurrDate=%CurrDate%%%Z
FOR %%X IN (%DD%)   DO SET CurrDate=%CurrDate%%%X

ECHO userid >> dynamic_file.txt
ECHO pwd >> dynamic_file.txt
ECHO GET ''TEST.ABCD.FILE(0)' File-%CurrDate%.txt >> dynamic_file.txt
ECHO quit >> dynamic_file.txt

ftp -s:dynamic_file.txt test.mainframe.com 

DEL dynamic_file.txt
