filemask for several file type; prbl. within command line

Hello
I'm getting in trouble using filemask with the command line to download several file types.
e.g. with the command below returns an error: Missing parameter for cammand 'get'
winscp /command "option batch abort" "option confirm off" "open ftp:/myftp.com" "get -resume -preservetime -filemask="*.m4a; *.wav; *.dct; *.txt" /data/dictate/* c:\temp\" "exit"    

But if I put just a single filetype like below, it works
winscp /command "option batch abort" "option confirm off" "open ftp:/myftp.com" "get -resume -preservetime -filemask=" *.txt" /data/dictate/* c:\temp\" "exit"    

It's like the semi-column separator was not accepted. I tried many other options witout success. Would someone be able to help me?
Thanks in advance

Note the double double-quotes.

Yeah! Cool! It works so.
Thanks a lot prikryl.

Funny: in my code now, I've got quintuple quotes :mrgreen:
... preservetime -filemask="""""& $fileType &""""" ...

The -filemask switch was introduced in 5.0.6 only. For older versions use "option include". Or even better, upgrade.
