I need to set up a process to transfer either an Excel spread sheet or an Access database from the PC network to the iSeries. I tried using FTP on the iSeries with the "Get" command but it doesn't work because of our security. It seems that what ever I do has to be set up on the PC side. I need the task to run on a weekly basis unattended.

See Microsoft's Knowledge Base for the exact instruction on using FTP in batch from windows.
This method requires the FTP port on the iSeries.
