i want to add manually the host key for the winscp becuase i am linkng a job in sql to the winscp for copying file to sftp server , the problem is that the key saved in all my jobs is 1024:........ while the hostkey in the winsp is 2048:.......has a different hostkey then the one saved in sql jobs , so all my jobs failed during execution because usinmg different host key then the one saved in the cache of the winscp

so my question is how to change the hostkey in the winscp cache from 2048:... to 1024:.... to be the same as the hoskey that is saved in my all sql jobs.

i tried the command line form winscp : winscp> open sftp://..................-hostkey="ssh-rsa 1024 .................."but i'ts failed

The value in -hostkey switch is NOT compared to the value in WinSCP cache.
Your post does not make sense.

Please attach a full log file showing the problem (using the latest version of WinSCP).

To generate log file, use /log=path_to_log_file command-line argument. Submit the log with your post as an attachment. Note that passwords and passphrases not stored in the log. You may want to remove other data you consider sensitive though, such as host names, IP addresses, account names or file names (unless they are relevant to the problem). If you do not want to post the log publicly, you can mark the attachment as private.
