Access file from ftp without downloading it

Specs: Windows XP, 1.99 gb
I've tried to download files from remote ftp server and i've succeeded in doing so. But when I'm trying to open the downloaded files it is displaying the message " Excel cannot open the file because the file format or th file extension is not valid. Verify that the file has not been corrupted and that the file extension matches the format of the file ". Iam able to open a few .xlsx files downloaded but I find the above mentioned problem while trying to open a few .xlsx files downloaded. Is there any way to access,move files from ftp server to a desired location without downloading it. If not suggest me a solution to the above mentioned problem i.e., to open the downloaded .xlsx files.

Are you setting the download type to binary before doing the FTP download (just type "binary" at the FTP command prompt)? Excell files are not simple text files so must be downloaded as binary files.
