Ftp Files Backup

I am a new user with Macro Express and trying to create a macro that will send the content of a directory over a FTP site. I went through the entire process, from Change Directory, FTP Site connect and FTP Send but The data is not coming across. I added a few pause to the process but is there a simple way to follow through and display in a windows (or something) the result of each step so I know what is not working!!

 

Thanks for any suggestions.

Each FTP command puts the result into a variable. You can either display the variables, append each variable into one, or append the variables to a log file. Here are a few ideas:

 

// Display results of each FTP command separately

// Connect
FTP Connect to ftp.aserver.com
Text Box Display: %T1%
// Change to a directory
FTP Change Directory: "/xxx/xxxxx/xxxx/xxxxxx/ftptest"
Text Box Display: %T1%
// List the contents of the ftptest directory
FTP List Directory
Text Box Display: %T1%
// Change to the YYY directory
FTP Change Directory: "/xxx/xxxxx/xxxx/xxxxxx/ftptest/YYY"
Text Box Display: %T1%
// List the contents of the xxxxxxx/YYY directory
FTP List Directory
Text Box Display: %T1%

// Disconnect
FTP Disconnect

Put results from each FTP command in a different variable, display all of them at the end

// Connect - put result in T1
FTP Connect to ftp.aserver.com
// Change to a directory - put result in T2
FTP Change Directory: "/xxx/xxxxx/xxxx/xxxxxx/ftptest"
// List the contents of the ftptest directory - put result in T3
FTP List Directory
// Change to the YYY directory - put result in T4
FTP Change Directory: "/xxx/xxxxx/xxxx/xxxxxx/ftptest/YYY"
// List the contents of the ftptest/YYY directory - put result in T5
FTP List Directory
// Disconnect
FTP Disconnect
Text Box Display: Display results in T1, T2, T3, T4 and T5

Put results from each FTP command in a different variable, display all of them at the end

//Connect
FTP Connect to ftp.aserver.com
Log Message to Default Error Log
// Change to a directory
FTP Change Directory: "/xxx/xxxxx/xxxx/xxxxxx/ftptest"
Log Message to Default Error Log
// List the contents of the ftptest directory
FTP List Directory
Log Message to Default Error Log
// Change to the YYY directory
FTP Change Directory: "/xxx/xxxxx/xxxx/xxxxxx/ftptest/YYY"
Log Message to Default Error Log
// List the contents of the ftptest/YYY directory
FTP List Directory
Log Message to Default Error Log
// Disconnect
FTP Disconnect

// Results are in the log file
