The following was entered to copy an iSeries file to the IFS directory.
CPYTOIMPF FROMFILE(mylib/filename) TOSTMF('/qdls/dir1/filename.csv' ) MBROPT(*REPLACE) RCDDLM(*CRLF) DTAFMT(*DLM)
When displaying the file within the IFS directory, it appears to be in a comma delimited format. However, when this file is copied to a PC, it does not display in a comma-delimited format ("@@@@kCOk???oonuuokCO?uonoooo" displayed).
This occurs on both V4R5 and V5R1 machines. What can I do to get this to display the PC file in the proper comma-delimited format?
It seems to me that the sream file created by cpytoimpf has an ebcdic code page. In order to test it you may try to add stmfcodpag parameter , for example:
CPYTOIMPF FROMFILE(mylib/filename) TOSTMF('/qdls/dir1/filename.csv' ) MBROPT(*REPLACE) RCDDLM(*CRLF) DTAFMT(*DLM) stmfcodpag(819)
