automatic proces question


Played around, but I cannot find a way to create an automatic scheduled process (timer) that downloads a file from an ftp server (or network location) and does some processing of that file. Is this not possible?

I want to create a generic way for importing (and processing) excel or csv files, that for some projects is manual (so from a webscreen) but for other projects must be automated. The processing of the file is the same, so I want to point to -if possible- the same action flow for processing -the automatic and manual way.
