The best way is to use the Client Access File Transfer to upload your Excel spreadsheet into your iSeries 400 file. If you want to upload directly to an iSeries file, make sure your rows (across) your spreadsheet match the maximum length and type of field in your iSeries file. The easiest way to do this is to download from your iSeries file and save as an Excel spreadsheet. You can use that file as a template to enter your Excel data for upload.
