There better methods to transfer binary files (i.e pdf) to the IFS.
Netserver: Netserver allow you to map iSeries IFS directory to the PC, than just use copy command on your PC to move data from the PC to the AS/400 directory.
Use FTP to transfer the data. The FTP scricpt should look like this
- CD/IFS Directory
- LCD localDirOnPC
- Put myfile.pdf
