Good spot there Jim! My thanks. :-))
Changed reject variable to remove "*.CGL" and modified "*.CHK" to simply CHK.
Also amended the accept variable to simply CGL - this is not really what I 
want but I'm willing to try anything to first get a hit before I try to 
whittle it down further.

Happy to say I'm now getting a hit - well actually tons of them!! as the site 
contains files with names "*BatchXXXX.CGL" as well as "*BatchXXXXVAT.CGL".

It is only the latter files that I want.

Any helpful hints? Or am going to have to resort to writing a batch file to 
sift the data?

As always, thanks for your knowlegdable inputs.
