I'm trying to export an iSeries file --via FTP to my PC -- to use it with Excel. I'm having trouble accomplishing...
this. I have to separate the data with a character, i.e. semi column. I then have to transform all the data from numeric to alphanumeric, and the exported file to .txt. Then, the end-user has to transform it into an Excel file, which is difficult on them. How can I accomplish this automatically without all the manipulations?
It is possible to automate the process for sending files to Excel using CPYTOIMPF. The command CPYTOIMPF "flattens" the file and adds all of the required characters, semicolon etc.
