    Unanswered: dBase 5 mixed case file name

    I have an old dbase 5 program that needs to send data using FTP. The problem I am having is that the new file needs to be mixed case, i.g., ddExport.txt where the E is upper case. When I create the file using
    COPY TO ddExport.txt delimited it creates DDEXPORT.TXT I am sure that I had it working right during the testing phase, but when I went to run the program for real it creates upper case file names only. What am I doing wrong?
    Thanks for your assistance

    FTP filename

    Apparently dbase only creates uppercase file names. The work-around I had to use was to rename the file on the host computer via FTP once it was sent. I tested this method and it works. Sad you can't create lower case file names, it would have been so much simpler.

    tambs,

    On the work around side, you could also have a batch file, rename or copy to another file name, your output file. Run the process thru a batch file to execute the actual program and rename the file for you on the way out.

    Thanks,

    Jim C.
