This is what I am doing...I am taking a report file (.txt)that is generated on the mainframe (MVS) and using an FTP job, sending it over to the FTP service on IIS 4.0.
What I want to do is #include this .txt file into an HTML or ASP file that is on the actual web site which I have created using Frontpage 98. The reason I want to do this is to control the font size so that it will print on one page width and also provide the user with navigation as well. I can get the #include to work if the report file is on the web site (http
:) but I can not get the report to include if the report is on ftp. I also tried to put the ASP file on the FTP server, so that both files were in the same place, but that didn't work either. The report files will be updated very frequently so it is important to automate the process of bringing in these reports, so I don't want any manual intervention.
Another important piece of info is that both the web server and ftp server are physically on the same machine so I don't understand why this isn't working.
