Tip

Verify FTP transmission

When you have a regularly automated FTP process, the last thing you want do is to manually check the transmission to make sure your file was sent successfully.

In your FTP process you have declared the OUTPUT to be redirected to a file. You can then scan that file for a "SUCCESSFULL" transmission code (226). If this code is found you can continue on with processing. If the code is not found in the file, we send a automated page to our programming team to inform them of the failed FTP.

Declare OUTFILE in FTP process:
OVRDBF FILE (OUTPUT) TOFILE (LIB/FILE) MBR(MEMBER)


Check for good transmission in separate CL:
DCLF FILE(LIB/FILE) RCDFMT(QTXTSRC)ALWVARLEN(*NO)
READ:RCVF RCDFMT(QTXTSRC)
MONMSG MSGID(CPF0864)
EXEC (GOTO CMDLBL(SENDMSG))
/*Check for EOF */

IF COND(%SST(&SRCDTA 1 3) *EQ '226') THEN(GOTO CMDLBL (DELETE))
ELSE CMD(GOTO CMDLBL(READ))
DELETE: DLTDLO DLO(file) FLR(FOLDER) /* Delete Data files */
GOTO GOTO CMDLBL (END)
SENDMSG: SNDPGRMSG TOPGR(BAT) MSG('Please Log a Priority 2 +
Call to BAT_DTSOC. FTP Failed!')
END: ENDPGM
