Is it possible to send ftp files in ASCII mode with ftp.dll? By the way, it works great in binary mode.

No, not at this time. There should be no adverse effect on sending text files in binary mode. Can you elaborate on why you would need this?

The script that I wrote copies files from a UNIX server to a Windows Servers. In testing with the user we notice file size differences between files I copied with a ftp GUI client in ascii mode and the files copied with the script. Also, on the windows server when opening the file(sent by script) it's pretty garbled, while the one sent via the GUI is readable.
