I want to automate dos ftp transfer weekly. There will be up to a few hundred files each week. Therefore I'd like to transfer them based on date but I can always overwrite previous files if necessary (files are sequentially numbered).

Post this in the programming forum.

You could simply put your FTP command into a text file and rename the file to have a .bat on it. Then use Task Scheduler to run the batch files when you want them to be run.

not enough. mget works by file name.

For some reason I think that dos ftp doesn't like scripts but could be wrong on that. Seems to me you need hey or expect to get it to work with scripts.
