    I assume that you selected that connection from the drop down in the job? Search for that connection and lets see the content. I assume its missing a field

    Create new object -> CONN -> FTPAGENT->FTPCONNECTION


    It has to be in the same client as the FTP Job

    I'd just recreate it in the client with the job. Export/import will just strip the password.

    However, I use transport case for migrating all objects in my environment

    Sorry.   They are in the same Client.  But it still doesn’t show in the drop down window.

    OK,…  I guess I misunderstood… I was looking for the remote host in the dropdown, not the connection object…   Let me see if this gets me where I need to be.
