I am getting files from an ftp server and the customer is keeping several day's worth of data on their site and I only want to pull the current day's data.  Is there any way I can do that.

This is the script I am currently using.

Thanks in advance

1.  open 999.999.999.999
2.  user MICKEYMOUSE
3.  PASSWORD
4.  prompt
5.  lcd c:\TEMP\
6.  bin
7.  mget *.*
8.  quit

I think it will be difficult to do this with "standard" Microsoft FTP.  Third party utilities, however, such as Robo-FTP, Beyond Compare, or even WS_FTP can easily accomplish what you want.  Most are free to try, but not free forever.  I would recommend trying one or more of these tools, and seeing which you like best.
