SFTP script not completing

Hello All -

I am running into problems fully executing the script below. I run the script it opens winscp and logs in fine. I see the remote directory. I am trying to change the local directory to C:\Needles\Podium but it will not change and the local dir stays at C:\. What do I need to do to have the script change the local dir to C:\Needles\Podium and upload any files that end in csv? I have tried using lcd C:\Needles\Podium and that does not work either. Below is the ending of the logfile and .ps script.

What is localchdir? Where have you seen that?

It should be lcd "C:\Needles\Podium"

I tried that an it still does not work. WinSCP opens and then it shows 2 directories. The left is C:\ and the right is the correct FTP directory. What is causing the left directory to not chagne to C:\Needles\Podium?

Here is the script.
# Connect to SFTP
"C:\Program Files (x86)\WinSCP\WinSCP.exe" sftp://username:Password@uploads.podium.co
# Change local directory
lcd "C:\Needles\Podium\"
#Upload files to Podium
put NeedlesPodiumExportWithRelease.csv NeedlesPodiumExport.csv
pause
#Disconnect
close
#Exit WinSCP
exit

Re: SFTP script not completing

OK, I see.

I assume that what you call "script" is actually a Windows batch file.

The first command in the batch file runs WinSCP in GUI mode. And stops there.

You have to move your WinSCP commands to script file and tell WinSCP to execute that script file in scripting mode:

"C:\Program Files (x86)\WinSCP\WinSCP.com" /script=c:\path\to\winscp.txt

And add open sftp://username:Password@uploads.podium.co command to the beginning of the winscp.txt.
