The files in QSYS are limited in length to 10 characters, so your proposed name is not acceptable in QSYS.LIB. Your options are:
- Use namefmt 1 and send the file to the remote as 400 IFS; or
- Truncate the name (or rename it ) during the ftp process.
If the target file in the QSYS.LIB is to be somehow accessed by SQL you may consider using an alias (i.e., create alias MSD08042005 for file with name D08042005).
