as suggested, but this does not connect at all, now. i've also tried inserting '/console', and all possible iterations using c:\...\WinSCP.com without success.... May i ask, what should the exact string be? also, i'm not sure i understand the "paths with spaces" comment; have not seen double quotes around the files paths in any of the examples, else i'm misunderstanding(likely!).
... "put \\localDrive\localFolder\FTP_Upload_Test.txt ""/Monthly Reporting/2014/3-2014/""" ...
appreciate your help, martin, but simply unable to get this! :oops: we'll just manually transfer the files for now - thanks again!
