Net Send with Yes/No or some kind of If statement???

I have a script that net send's a message that something is happening. I do not want the user to be able to click OK or close  the alert or anything until the event has happened. Is there a way to have a yes/no type thing, like vbYesNo, using net send? Here's how it is used in my .cmd script:

@echo off
ftp -s:ftp-ls.scr ftp.host.com > %temp%\ftp-ls.tmp 2>&1
find /i "FromOffice.mdb" "%temp%\ftp-ls.tmp"
If "%errorlevel%" == "1" (
Net Send %computername% You Already Have The Most Current Data File. No File Was Downloaded.
Goto End
)
Net Send %computername% Now Downloading The Most Current Data File.
ftp -s:ftp-get.scr ftp.host.com > NUL
copy C:\mdb_download\FromOffice.mdb C:\FromOffice.mdb
Net Send %computername% Download Complete.
:End
del %temp%\ftp-ls.tmp

You would have to rework the script into a vbscript, but yes it can be done.  I will post a script either later tonight, or tomorrow morning for you that will do this.

Thank you, thank you. A vbscript would be perfect if that would work (because I have worked with them a little bit before). Thanks.

I started to write you a script and realized it was going to take awhile, but came across this one already mostly completed =)

I could hve it check sizes to verify if the file is the same to make sure it has the latest file...?

Option Explicit
On Error Resume Next

Dim WshShell, FSO

Set FSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set WshShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
      msgbox "File transfer inprogress, click ok and wait for Next Message",1
WshShell.Run "ftp -s:c:\scripts\workarea\ftp_check.scr FTP_HOST_NAME",2,True
      IF FSo.fileexists("c:\fromoffice.mdb") then
      msgbox "File transfer complete",1
      End If
Set FSO = nothing
Set Wshshell = nothing

Code inside something like this:
ftp.scr
'===============Cut-N-Paste==============
open ftp.yourserver.com
username
password
cd mdb_download
get FromOffice.mdb C:\FromOffice.mdb
bye
