Hi,

A file is being FTPed to server (which has the date of creation included in its file name).
Now, I need to delete that FTPed file depending on the duration it resides in server.

Please let me know how to acheive this.

Thank you.

Obviously the easiest way would be if your site had TSM or some other non mainframe ILM software installed.

Have you spoken to your storage management group.

We have a similar process that runs "weekdaily" (i.e., Monday through Friday). In essence, get a directory of files in the target folder(s), determine which are candidates for deletion, and fabricate DOS or *nix DELETE commands for them. If you have suitable PC/LAN scripting facilities (e.g., Regina), you can do it all on the LAN side; otherwise, you'll want to fabricate your command files on the mainframe with Rexx, FTP them to the LAN, and then FTP the results (piped into a file) back to the mainframe and parse it there with Rexx.
