PDF to AS/400
Is there a way to copy pdf files directly into an AS/400 data file?

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

AS/400 is object oriented so you cannot imbed a pdf file into a Physical file unless you converted the PDF file to text format first then you could use file transfer or CPYFRMSTMF

    Hi, You could try FTPing the file as a binary. You won't be able to do much with it on the AS/400 afterwards, but you can then FTP it elsewhere as a binary and it should remain intact. Regards, Martin Gilbert.

    Or if you just want to store it on the system, you could put it in the IFS for access as needed from a PC, or sending it elsewhere at a later time. It depends on what your purpose is.

    Folks Surely you could store pdf data as a BLOB within db2 udb in the QSYS.lib portion of the system? As to why you would do this, of course.. .. . Perhaps Mounthood could tell us what they want to *do* and we can make sensible suggestions..
