Brett, great script. Just what the doctor ordered for a quick and
easy FTP task I needed to complete. I received access to the ftp
location, found this file, and using your script and about 6 lines
of code had my spreadsheet solution available for my colleague.
What I used it for:
We had identified a webserver that we provide WebTrend reports to
our users didn't have a couple months of data for certain pages.
Since the webserver was setup in a structured way, I was able to
use the directory and file paths returned by your script to identify
all the paths I needed, filtered the paths to keep only the ones
with certain file in it, then parsed the path, wrote to an .xls file
and created a pivot table to identify which years, months and reports
were properly created. Found many instances of items that were thought
to have been craeted, but had not for one reason or another (admin
error). Now I have a happy client.
