when I attempt to export a file most vchar and char fields default to datalink type via odbc. The iseries does not like the datalink type as then it can't find the link. When I try to force the vchar field it creates the file but then on the copy tells me the field is not found Any suggestions

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

Can you CAST the field as VARCHAR or even CHAR?
