. . . as opposed to a browser session.
 
I would envision the following:
 
1.     a table like "my_files.dbf" exists on the site
 
2.     a program like "my_procedures" (.prg or .fxp or .exe) exists on the site directory.
 
3.     a file like "batch.txt" is uploaded to the site using FTP
 
4.     a command like:       
 
               my_procedures.exe batch.txt
 
        would cause "my_procedures" to append the data in "batch.txt" to
        "my_files.dbf"
 
Right now in order to accomplish this, I have to first copy the file from the site to a local directory, append the new data and then copy it back or use the FTP "append" command which lacks the sophistication of a FoxPro function.
 
Thanks,
 
Gene
