Data Dummy Needs Help

I am ftp-ing (I think) files from one computer to another and I am using the Put command to do this. Is there a way for me to string these commands together and Put several files at once?

Thanks,
Amy

Thanks for your help!

I tried mput but before it opens each file, it askes "mput filename?". Is there a way around this?
