I read what you wrote bob, and I have a few questions.


1. Why change to name format 1? I never do, I will just do a cd qgpl or whatever why would I want to type all the extra crap?


2. I typically never do a "lcd" unless the path is long as you can just as simply type PUT

let it prompt you for the source and for the output  names.


But my real question was about the namefmt 1 which I never use and I have probably done lots of ftp save situations and it was never necessary.


So I am not "criticizing" but wondering the reasoning to use.
