See your other post ftp file size.

If you don't control both sites, you may not be able to implement that solution. You would have to have the other system's admin send the files a certain way and some folks just won't listenSmilie

There is no command in ftp to check the file size but you may be able to see the file size via ftp dir command. It matters on the ftp running. Possible that you could compare it but I've not done it this way before.
