What is the folder structure on the host, and how are they named?

Will the files be placed in corresponding monthly and daily folders on the receiving client, or all in one folder?

sorry took so long to respond  the file structure is year as 13 then month 01 folder 02 folder
in the each folder there is between 1 and 31 in some folders this depends on how many days are in a month eg 02 folder will only have 28 folders

then copied to a folder is the same format year folder and month and then day

Assuming the folder structure is YY\MM\DD on both the server and client, then this should be pretty close to what you described.

Option Explicit

Const ForWriting = 2
Const TempFile = "C:\temp\temp\empty.txt"

Dim objOutStream, objjFSO, objShell
Dim strYear, strMonth, strDay

strYear = Right(Year(Now()), 2)
strMonth = Right("0" & Month(Now()), 2)
strDay = Right("0" & Day(Now()), 2)

Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set objOutStream = objFSO.OpenTextFile(TempFile, ForWriting, True)

objOutStream.WriteLine "USER myuser"   ' USERNAME
objOutStream.WriteLine "mypass"     ' Password
objOutStream.WriteLine "binary"
objOutStream.WriteLine "lcd /foldertocopyfrom" ' FOLDER I'm changing into
objOutStream.WriteLine "lcd " & strYear ' Year folder
objOutStream.WriteLine "cd " & strYear ' Year folder
objOutStream.WriteLine "lcd " & strMonth ' Month folder
objOutStream.WriteLine "cd " & strMonth ' Month folder

If strDay = "01" Then
   objOutStream.WriteLine "mget *"    ' Get all files with today's date in it
End If

objOutStream.WriteLine "lcd " & strDay ' Day folder
objOutStream.WriteLine "cd " & strDay ' Day folder
objOutStream.WriteLine "mget *"    ' Get all files with today's date in it

objOutStream.WriteLine "quit"
objOutStream.Close

Set objShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
objShell.Run "%comspec% /c FTP -n -i -s:" & TempFile & " " & "ftp.location.com", 0, True
