Resurrecting this thread. I'm running Automate 10.7.0.3
Leonard's answer to the question above avoids Hal's initial question. Like Hal, I want to use FTP Advanced File Exist to determine if any file is on the ftp before attempting a download (and generating the corresponding error when there's nothing). What I've found is that using the "populate variable with return data" option always returns False, even when the file is explicitly named. Example:
Send File_Exist command to the FTP server. Include the parameter(s) "Inbound/testfile.txt". Populate automate variable "file_on_ftp" with the return data. Session "FtpSession1"
Is there a later build of Automate 10 past 10.7.0.3? If so, was this issue fixed?
