Yes, quite a help. Actually I figured it out yesterday. It is working nicely now. Do you have the company send you the DONE file only after the percieve that the zip file is done uploading?

I use a similar process for detection of a .DONE file. I have built a VB6 exe and fire a DTS package every 2 hours from 7:30 am > 9:30 PM looking for the file. I write into a SQL table JobId, SearchDateTime, FoundFileYN. Based on IF the file exists and IF this is the first time today (AND/OR IF this is first run ever) inside a stored-procedure I then fire off the job that processes the file.

I use an external VB6 executable to keep this aspect separate from SQL and if modifications are ever needed they are modified external from DTS modifications.

Here is my VB6 code:
