This may be more visual basic than sql server but anyhow, these are steps i take from a DOS prompt.

C:\>ftp sail
Connected to sail.xxxxxx.edu.
220-FTPSRVHD IBM MVS V3R2 at cpslo.its.xxxxxxy.edu, 09:12:51 on 2000/04/21
220 Connection will close if idle for more than 5 minutes.
User (sail.xxxxx.edu:(none)): master
331 Send password please.
Password:
230 master is logged on.  Working directory is "master.".
ftp> quote site filetype=jes
200 Site command was accepted
ftp> put pcjcl
200 Port request OK.
125 Sending Job to JES Internal Reader FIXrecfm 80
250-It is known to JES as JOB08814
250 Transfer completed successfully.
366 bytes sent in 0.00 seconds (366000.00 Kbytes/sec)
ftp> quit
221 Quit command received. Goodbye.

C:\>
I would like to have a stored procedure that would do the ftp and put the
line that says 'it is known to jes as job08814'  into some little table.
I'm using 6.5

I think you need a small script (shell script/perl or similar) that can execute all your input operations.
Then, in SQL, you may insert the whole output into a table using
INSERT INTO YouTable EXEC xp_cmdshell  "Your Dos Command to launch the Script"
After this, you can query you table to find the rows that are interesting.
Unfortunately, i don't know what script you need to use, i only know that it is possible to do (seeing our Network Adminstrators having things like that)

Good luck

put your commands into a file and then run ftp with

ftp -s:<filename>

and as angelIII said use someting like

CREATE TABLE #TMP (output varchar(255))

INSERT INTO #TMP EXEC xp_cmdshell 'ftp -s:MYFtpFile.txt'

INSERT INTO MyJobTable
SELECT output
 FROM #TMP
WHERE output LIKE '%It is known%'

DROP TABLE #TMP



The MyFtpFile.txt should loook like

open sail <password>
quote site filetype=jes
put pcjcl
quit

You will need to secure this file to stop people finding the password.
