I have few text files in my local directory with timestamp.

for EX:
1.20150805.txt
2.20150828.txt
3.20150806.txt

when I am trying to transfer(put) these files to Tectia SFTP server based on file mask and time stamp. I am not able to transfer,the log shows files are excluded from transfer

please help me.


my code is like this:

put -filemask="*>=%TIMESTAMP#yyyymmdd%" *.*

The log looks like below:

The correct syntax is:
put -filemask="*>=%TIMESTAMP#yyyy-mm-dd%" *.*

See http://winscp.net/eng/docs/file_mask#size_time

Btw, this will upload only today's files. Is this what you are trying to do?

Thanks a lot prikryl for your support.


But I have one more question

I have used the following command in my script

put -filemask="*<=%TIMESTAMP#yyyy-mm-dd%" *.*

It copied all the files whose Timestamp is earlier than today but not today's files?

May I know why?

Because the yyyy-mm-dd means midnight (for the missing time-part the 00:00:00 is implied).

If you want to include today (what does not make sense as you are going to include all files, so you do not need the time constraint), use:

put -filemask="*<=%TIMESTAMP#yyyy-mm-dd% 23:59:59" *.*
