How to create a local folder using the current date

23rd October 2017

Dates can be written in multiple ways, not only because of the language used (English, Spanish, German…) but also within the same language we can write a date in many different ways. For example in English, we can write it as “20 October 2017”, 20/10/2017, 10/20/2017 etc.

In ScriptFTP the most common formats of dates are available in the GETTIME command but sometimes you need to retrieve the date or time components separately (month, day, year, hour…) and build your own expression of a date or time. In this example, it is shown how to build a date expression without spaces and using a three letter month, for example “20Jan2017”. We will then use it to create a local directory.

ScriptFTP 4.4

2nd October 2017

This is another small bug fixing release. Unless you have experienced problems installing ScriptFTP or use IBM zOS servers it is not worth applying this small update.

  • Fixes on how RAWCOMMAND and FTP protocol NOOP command are sent to IBM zOS servers
  • Fixed some WinHTTP Runtime errors during setup.
  • Hot keys F5,F8 and ESC now works regardless of the element of the ScriptFTP window has the focus
  • SILENT┬ámode fixes. SYNC now shows the uploads/downloads even on silent mode as it was supposed to happen.
