AS/400 Client Access
Hi,    Can any one of you tell me how to use Client access to transfer database from host to PC text file?
What i need to do is to copy a PF from AS400 to text file (in PC). I tried for Reflection but facing issue with larger files. I heard from some one it can be done using Client Access which is an IBM tool (i Access). I found an option Client Access/400 tasks (in which i found the option CPYTOCPD). I thought this can be the option. So is there some other way to use Client access.

[Br _extended="true" />In file transfer setup, under option transport i found Client Access/400 (usually given FTP/IP). But when i select this option, it throws an error: “File not found. You should exit reflection & rerun setup”.

    Can any one of you tell me how to use Client access to transfer database from host to PC text file? Start-> Programs-> IBM iSeries Access-> Data Transfer From iSeries Server Then fill in the values that you need, and click the <Transfer data...> button. Since we don't know anything about the server, the PC nor the data requirements, that's about all we can say. Tom

    Copy To PC Document (CPYTOPCD) The CPYTOPCD command is not a Client Access command, and it does not copy to a "PC". It copies to a "PC document". The document will still be on the AS/400. Generally, the command is obsolete and should no longer be used. The Client Access commands are on the PC, not on the AS/400. Please describe the business process that you are trying to do. Tom

    The general problem is that the question asks about to do something with Client Access, but the OP is using Reflection. The 'Answer' should start with "Install Client Access before asking how to make a Client Access function work."Tom
