Data file status during FTP

Help!!!! Can Anyone out there help me? I need to write a script to automate a task to translate files. The files will be transfered through ftp to the workstation. Is there a way to check the file status whether the file has finished being transfered or still transfering. Or is there a way to block the file from being used by other process during ftp transfer .so that my task will be performed after the file has finished transfered to the workstation . Urgent Help ! Thanks in advance

maybe you could ftp it to a temporary file name once the ftp transfer has finished you could move it as part of the ftp session to its correct name which would then be seen by the process which wants to use the file.

Just a thought
