Sending a PC file to the database file

In a CL program, how can I run a command that will 'SEND' a PC file from my PC's hard drive to a database file on my iSeries? I am doing it now by selecting the SEND button on my CA/400 tool bar which runs PC5250$A.tfr, but would like to do it by selecting an option on an iSeries menu.
This can be done by using STRPCCMD. Please take a look at the following CL code snippet:

strpccmd cmd('rtopcb xx.tto')

Most emulation products will run STRPCCMD with no problems.
