Coping files from server to local

This is my first post, so first I'd like to say hello to everyone.

Here's the issue I'm having...I run a macro against multiple log files every morning. The procedure is sort of time consuming. I have to log into the box where there are stored, then ftp/download them to my local drive using WinSCP. I want to write a script that will do the transfering of files for me every morning. Can anyone help?

Thanks so much!

You could set up an FTP Server on your PC and then write a script on the box you log into to do the download. You could use CRON to schedule it.

Yeah, I figured that it would be done with a script and CRON, and that's where I'm running into trouble. I'm not sure how to script this. Any ideas?

Try writing a batch file and schedule it with schtasks.
