in cuteFTP there are Event Triggers for Transfer Events. Perhaps they can accomplish the task?

I was not able to find the Event Trigger but created a script. I have the script below but can someone help me to only delete the file if upload is successful only.

I only want to do this step when the upload is succesful.
MySite.LocalRemove "C:\Program Files\COMMERCE Connection32\FTP\TCMPI\Outbound\*.edi"

' Create TEConnection object
Set MySite = CreateObject("CuteFTPPro.TEConnection")

' Initialize remote server host name, protocol, port, etc.
MySite.Host = "Host IP"
MySite.Protocol = "FTP"
MySite.Port = 21
MySite.Retries = 30
MySite.Delay = 30
MySite.MaxConnections = 4
MySite.TransferType = "AUTO"

MySite.AutoRename = "OFF"

MySite.SocksInfo = ""
MySite.ProxyInfo = ""

Can someone let me know what I should add on the script above to check if it's a success first before deleting the file?
