Sub ftp(source_path As String, source_file As String, ip As String)
Open "c:\ftp_input.txt" For Output As #1
Print #1, "open " & ip
Print #1, "Enter ftp userid here"
Print #1, "Enter ftp password here"
Print #1, "lcd " & "c:\paf_local"
Print #1, "prompt"
Print #1, "cd " & source_path
Print #1, "get " & source_file
Print #1, "bye"
