Hello,
  I would like to know how to pass a password for a sftp routine,

I am sending a file using sftp and need to send the password.  The $PASS does not work and I am not sure how this is done.  When I run my script, it asks for a password that I need to type for the script to continue.  Thanks.

ftp_the_file()
{
sftp -oport=22 $USER@$NODE 2>$ftp_message_file 1>&2 <<EOF
$PASS
cd $DIRECTORY
get $NEW_FILE $NEW_FILE
rm $NEW_FILE
bye
EOF
}

I recommend using sshpass.

sshpass -e sftp -oBatchMode=no -b -p 'my_password' - my_user_name@server_url << !
   put file_to_upload
   bye
