Subject IBM MVS/ftp server ERROR 550 - Mismatched quotes error
Version 6.x
Date   07/22/2007
Message I am evaluating your software to see if I can download (ftp) files from a ftp server on an IBM MVS/ftp server. I can connect easily and see files, but when I try to transfer from the IBM - to the MAC OSX machine - I get a ERROR 550 - Mismatched quotes error. 550 Mismatched quotes on pathname 'C122.'/ADM.CSV
Reply1 Hi gerard, 
Thanks for using Automize. 
1) We have had a few users who have been using the regular Ftp task for both put and get to IBM MVS servers without any problems. However, we also have had a couple of users who have had problems with either put or get (i forget which). The issue seems to be related to how the user account on the MVS Ftp server is setup, which ultimately creates a problem with the remote directory path. 
2) You can try and use the Ftp Command task to connect to MVS server. Users who had problems using the Ftp task had success with the Ftp Command task. 
3) This article was originally for version 4.x and 5.x but also applies to 6.x:  
4) Also please see below from our internal email support database search on MVS ftp servers

UPDATE: Feb 2005 - In version 6.x, try and use "Names Only" as the Directory listing style in the Ftp profile
