Copying files from an FTP server

Hi everyone,

I have 3 .csv-files on a FTP-server.

How can I copy them to my local pc?

Thanks,

David

Re: Copying files from an FTP server

If you're ultimately going to use SAS to process them, why copy at all?  Just create an ftp filename that points to them and use that filename in your data step.  If you actually need to copy them, you can write and call and ftp batch command from within SAS.
