How can I copy a stream file to a physical file in a native iSeries library/file? When I try the CPYFRMSTMF command, it does not seem to recognize my PF name. MF1125 is my personal library on the iSeries. The file I?m trying to copy from is on the IFS in a directory named webMethods.
This he statement I am using:
===> CPYFRMSTMF FROMSTMF('/webMethods/x12data.txt')
TOMBR('/mf1125.lib/ecpthginfx.file') MBROPT(*ADD) DBFCCSID819)
Here is the error:
Object not a QSYS.LIB object. Object is /mf1125.lib/ecpthginfx.file. Perhaps I have the file name in the wrong format, or I need to link to the iSeries file before performing the copy. Can you shed some light on this matter?
The TOMBR parameter file name format is wrong, it needs to be in the form of: /QSYS.LIB/MF1125.LIB/ECPTHGINFX.FILE/MBR1.MBR
