problems with ftp

 Hi, everyone. I'm having a vexing problem with ftp-downloading a series of
files in a repeat loop. I need to download three files. The loop is very
simple, something akin to:

repeat with counter = 1 to 3
  put decompress(url ftpPath/file&counter&".gz") into temp
  put temp into fld counter
end repeat

 The ftp commands are straightforward, but what happens is that the first
file gets put in the third field, and the other fields aren't updated. So it
seems like the put command _isn't_ blocking. What can I do to fix this? I'm
still using rev 2.2. Thanks.
