Re: modify 'download most recent file' script to append file?

Add -append switch to get command. It works with SFTP protocol only though.

Can't make the download most recent file work for me

I'm pretty new to scripting so bear with me on this.

I can only get so far with this script. I am able to get it to login, view the files, create the XML file but then it says "No file found" even after it lists the files. I have a mask set to locate a file that starts with a specific name, it lists all the files that start with that but then doesn't go on to actually download anything.

It appears that while it is able to list the files, it doesn't actually write them to the xml file thus the no file in the log if statement that states:

if (filenameLatest == null)
{WScript.Echo("no file found");
WScript.Quit(0);
}

takes affect and doesn't move on to the rest of the script that actually does the file downloading.

Any assistance in pointing me in the write direction would be helpful.

The first part shows the connection information, access granted etc... The bottom part looks like this:

P.S. Sorry it took so long to get back to this, I've had other projects that took over my life!
