Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

you can use CPYSPLF to create a database file that contains the spool file data, then either FTP it as a database file or use CPYTOIMPF to create a text file in the IFS directories

    Hi BigKat I tried the Option. Once the Text is sent by FTP, it contains garbage charecters. It is not readable. It is neither English, nor Arabic. Thanks and appreciate your reply. Shiva

    After you run CPYSPLF to put records into the database file, is the database file readable to you on your iSeries? Tom

    Thanks Tom. Yes it is readable in AS400, but there is a catch. The English appears in Elnglish characters. But the Arabic is appearing as hex code i believe. I can not see the arabic letters but it is there. On the other hand, once FTP is completed I am getting only JUNK for all. like @@@#$#@@@ etc.....
