Re: FTP based on Date in QlikView

This isn't really related to qlik else to file-operations within the file-system whereby it's more difficult within ftp than in a normal windows file-system because ftp doesn't support file-functions like filetime() or filesize().

Nevertheless you will need batch-files which creates the appropriate filenames and moves with them the files. Here: Re: For Each File in Filelist - FTP load is not working? is an example which isn't directly related to your task but I think it will give you some idea what I meant and here: https://www.google.de/search?q=batch+ftp+move+files you could get further informations about the topic.
