Different results when running script from IDLE versus Command Line

Hi,

I'm new to Python and I'm having some problems with getting different
results from my script when I run it from IDLE versus just double-
clicking the .py file and having it run through the command line.
Basically, my script reads some CSV files, assembles a text files,
then uploads that test file to an ftp site. When I run the script from
IDLE, everything works fine. But when it runs from the command line,
the file that gets uploaded is empty. It seems that it is creating a
new file to upload, rather than using the existing file (or at least
that's what I think is going on.) Below is my script. I apologize for
any ugly code. Thanks for your help.

import sys,os,linecache,csv,ftplib,time

starttime = time.time()

#*******
#Summary file assembling

currentdir = "//folder/"

reg_sum = open('reg_sum.txt','w')
reg_sum.close

for files in os.listdir(currentdir):
    reg_file = csv.reader(open(currentdir + files))
    for row in reg_file:
        reg_sum = open('reg_sum.txt','a')
        reg_sum.write(",".join(row) + ',\n')

reg_sum.close
