Abstract

(57) [Summary] [Problem] Even if the transmission data file name is fixed and the same file name already exists on the FTP server, the transmission data file is not overwritten to transmit data to it, and transmission When there are a plurality of data files to be transmitted, it is possible to keep a united file transmitted by the user, and to provide a communication terminal device with a small burden on the user and a control method thereof. SOLUTION: A communication terminal device capable of communicating with an FTP server connected via a network, creates a directory name from a communication management number by adding a communication management number for each communication, or starts communication of a directory name. Create from date,
Alternatively, a directory name is created from the file name by attaching a file name to the data to be transmitted (S33), and a directory is created from the created directory name using FTP for each communication (S34). NO in S35 if directory creation failed,
At step S36, a subscript is added to the directory name, and a directory creation is attempted using the directory name with the subscript added S34.
