Hi,
I am using the below command to download the file from FTP. But i want to ensure if there is no files exist we need to alert a TEAM saying its not there.How can we achieve this ??

SET @cmd = 'del E:\ARK\AT\cmds.txt /Q'
EXEC master..xp_cmdshell @cmd

SET @cmd = 'echo username_XXX>> E:\ARK\AT\cmds.txt'
EXEC master..xp_cmdshell @cmd

SET @cmd = 'echo password_YYY >> E:\ARK\AT\cmds.txt'
EXEC master..xp_cmdshell @cmd

SET @cmd = 'echo lcd E:\ARK\AT >> E:\ARK\AT\cmds.txt'
EXEC master..xp_cmdshell @cmd

SET @cmd = 'echo cd /A/updates >> E:\ARK\AT\cmds.txt'
EXEC master..xp_cmdshell @cmd

SET @cmd = 'echo mget *' + dbo.AtDate() +'.* >> E:\ARK\AT\cmds.txt'
EXEC master..xp_cmdshell @cmd

SET @cmd = 'echo quit >> E:\ARK\AT\cmds.txt'
EXEC master..xp_cmdshell @cmd

SET @cmd = 'ftp -i -s:E:\ARK\AT\cmds.txt ftp.XXX.com'
EXEC master..xp_cmdshell @cmd

do a dir on file pattern and take the count and check if its >0 before you do above

wrap the entire code in a batch file
