Q

IFS system using RPG

I can read from and to the IFS system using RPG and certain API's. Can I also read from and to a PC file with RPG and some API's?


There is not an API currently that you can use to access a PC file that is not already in the IFS from OS/400, unless you are using DB2/Universal on your PC and the file is a defined DB2 file and the DB2 connector is installed and running. When installed, the PC becomes a DB2 server and OS/400 can access the file seamlessly using RDB.
