What happens when you run it?  

It looks like you used forward slashes for you local folder.

Here is how you do it with Robo-FTP:
WORKINGDIR "c:\users\data"
FTPLOGON "ftp.mysite.com" /user="UserID" /pw="secret"
FTPCD "/public_html"
SENDFILE "*.htm"
FTPLOGOFF
EXIT

Open in new window

I like using FTP without any extra command files, so the above would then look like:
@echo off
(echo open mysite.com
 echo username
 echo password
 echo !:--- FTP commands below here ---
 echo lcd C:/users/data 
 echo cd  public_html/
 echo binary
 echo mput "*.htm"
 echo disconnect
 echo bye
) | ftp -v -i

Open in new window

There methods for not needing to use echo, but they make the script more difficult to understand.

A great free utility that can do this is NCFTPPUT, take a look, it can do this all with a single line in a BAT file.
