I am currently using SSIS for loading data feeds via ftp and need to query the ftp site to ensure that the file being downloaded is the latest file when compared to the previously downloaded file that has the same name, whose time stamp is persisted in the database. My question - is there a way to retrieve the time stamp from a file located on the ftp site prior to downloading it. Essentially I want to compare timestamps prior to making a decision to download. For example if the time stamp on the ftp site for file x is greater than that of file x which was downloaded the day before then download file. I figured I would need to use a script task instead of the ftp task. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
