Thanks for your input and you did in fact force me to investigate
further... I am located in Ottawa/Canada, I had thought that the server
resided in the Same Time Zone (in the US), but it turns out that it is
located in San Jose.... ( I called to confirm, they have several
servers, the more commonly used ones are in New York (hence the
project manager's assumption) but this particular one is located in one
of their 'other' facilities) a whopping 3 hour difference....
Guess I just found out why!! I'll have to push my scheduled task out
to ~3:00 am instead of 12:00 AM.... having said that the responses and
suggestions were great... and the added safeguard "loop" will make me
sleep better. (error proofing).
Guess I am pessimistic about my code writing skills and figured it was
something I did.... rather than looking at the obvious!
(I had intended for the orginal paragraph to imply that we/I did not
have any other access/privleges (ie. Perl/Unix Crons etc.) other than
the limited/various FTP commands as it was not ours, but I am glad it
conveyed two messages).
Thanks for the gently worded reminder!
