Easy code copying via the drag and drop method
Code copying can be a lot easier using the drag and drop method than by any other means. What we need are two open windows, one containing the source and the other for the destination. A mouse drag and drop will carry out the rest.
If the windows we need are not open yet, then let's start by going through the following steps:
Launch the Client Access Operations Navigator
In the Operations Navigator window, open the desired connection and navigate to File Systems >> Integrated File System >> QSYS.LIB >> aaaLib.LIB >> xxxRPGSRC.FILE
Open the window up to the PC folder of your source file, drag the source file ( my example below uses member.MBR ) and then drop it to the xxxRPGSRC.FILE folder of the Operations Navigator window.
aaaLib is the name of the target library, xxxRPGSRC is the name of the target source physical file under aaaLib
In the AS400 File Systems, a library has a name extension of .LIB; a source physical file has a name extension of .FILE; and a source member has the name extension of .MBR
Below are explorer view screenshots of a PC folder and the Operations Navigator. The red arrow shows the direction of the drag and drop action.
