    Hi

    1. If I do

    DIR *_P4.TXT

    I see all those TXT files that end with "_P4"

    2. Now if I do

    COPY "ftp:*_P4.TXT" C:\Inbound

    does the same syntax work for FTP connections?
    Has it always worked for previous versions of TCC/4NT ?

    Thanks

    on your local (NTFS or FAT) drive.

    Most ftp servers use case-sensitive file systems. The wildcard processing is
    also different. within those limitations, your COPY command may work, or may
    fail. I often have problems with copying from an ftp server using a
    wildcard, and had the same problem in older command processor versions.
