So you mean to say, get works but put doesn't?

Do you have permission to write on the remote directory?

You can save-as your excel file as 'csv' and upload that. In MS-Excel, file->save-as and select CSV in filetype down list.

Later on the unix server, you can extract the last column.

Thanks CLX. I'm able to upload the .csv file in to unix server directory and then run the cut command to extract last column. However i need your help with the following ? sorry for troubling .

1. I'm able to ftp the file from desktop to Unix directory via windows cmd. Will there be any way to perform this FTP operation via UNIX directly? I meant logging in to putty and then ftp to desktop location and then get the file to unix directory. This way it will help me to automate the uploading process for other csv files.

2. The csv file has the 4 fields and sql's that i need to run on database are present in 3rd field. I need help in writing the command / script which reads the sql in 3rd field for all the records and run it against the database and fill the result back in to last field of the file?

Sorry but cant help you in this, this is something you need to contact your network/admin to check at firewall side whether the relative port is open or not. you need to provide the windows hostname/ipaddress to them.

Does this mean you want to extract third filed from CSV? If yes,
do something like,

Code:
while IFS=, read first second third forth
do
 # do stuffs here with any field you want
 # with $first, $second, $third and $forth variables
done < your_csv_file

automating a ftp job from your local system to a unix system... hmm... unless your .csv's are uniquely timestamped it might not work in your favor. you can always cd into the folder from command line (windows) and then ftp to the remote server. use the options:
Code:
prompt
mput *

or use a ftp tool like filezilla (i usually suggest this to any users who are non-tech savvy as it has a gui interface) and drag and drop.

this is untested as I just wrote it, but more or less should work from a unix system but you will have to adjust it for your needs:

Code:
#! /usr/bin/ksh

ftp=/usr/bin/ftp

PD=<local directory> 
TS=`/usr/bin/date +%Y%m%d`

$ftp -inv <host> <<__EOFTP > path/to/log/ftp.$TS.log 2>&1
user <username> <password>
lcd $PD
cd <path to directory>
ascii <or use whichever format you want
put `<filename>`
bye
__EOFTP

but keep in mind that is only for a specific filename. you would have to use
Code:
 prompt and mput

if you are importing or getting all files from that folder.

be sure to try this out manually first line by line prior to making this a consistent job.
