I have a script which looks like:

cd /usr/www/users/username/folder/
put C:\Archives\*.xls

this script works with another script to upload files to my remote web server. Everything is working fine, except I need to be able to upload ALL the .xls files in the "Archives" directory. Right now it only uploads one. Ideas?

use "mput" instead of "put" - Also, you might want to add "prompt" in a line right before the put statement.  By default, you would be prompted to upload each file, prompt turns that off.
