I want to transfer a text file to a database on my AS/400 without the inclusion of the srcseq and srcdat fields. I only want the srcdta field to be transferred.
The best way to send a text file to an AS/400 file is by using FTP.
1. From the windows issue the command ftp xx.xx.xx.xx where xx.xx.xx.xx is your AS/400 IP address.
2. Enter your user name and password.
3. You will receive ftp session prompt type the following:
ftp > ascii ftp > put pcfile as400file (pcfile = name of the text file on the pc as400file - as400 file name. file will be created if not exist) ftp > quit You are done. The resulting file on the as400 has the text only (no srcseq etc).
