I am using the CPYTOIMPF command to create a file in our IFS on our iSeries V5R2. Everything appears to go well EXCEPT that the trailing blanks of a record are truncated. Our end user needs this file to be a fixed format and fixed length, so those trailing blanks are needed. The following is how I?m currently using the command:
CPYTOIMPF FROMFILE(ORDTEST) TOSTMF('/testdir/ordtest.txt') STMFCODPAG(*STDASCII) RCDDLM(*CRLF) DTAFMT(*FIXED) STRDLM(*NONE) FLDDLM('').The FLDDLM value is two apostrophes with no blank in between. The result is that the CRLF chars are right up against the last non-blank character of the data. Any ideas on how I can retain the trailing blanks?
You should not have a field delimiter when attempting to copy to a fixed length field.
