I would convert the save file to a flat-file format using REXX, then FTP it to the save file on V4R2. Create a physical using the following:
CRTPF FILE(QTEMP/ISWRKF) RCDLEN(528) Create a source member and enter the following: 'OVRSAVF FILE(STDIN) TOFILE(qtemp/issavf) ' 'OVRDBF FILE(STDOUT) TOFILE(qtemp/iswrkf) ' DO FOREVER PARSE LINEIN SaveFileData IF SaveFileData == '' THEN LEAVE SAY SaveFileData END 'DLTOVR FILE(STDIN)' 'DLTOVR FILE(STDOUT)' 'RCLRSC' Run the REXX procedure. Then FTP using: quote rcmd CRTSAVF FILE(QGPL/ISSAVF) BINARY PUT /qsys.lib/qtemp.lib/iswrkf.file/iswrkf.mbr /qsys.lib/qgpl.lib/issavf.file/issavf.mbr
