Exporting files via AS/400 iNavigator

I am exporting hundreds of files daily from the inavigator to our company network. When I simply drag files over to network it changes the file to a text file. If I export the file using the inavigator it defaults to My Documents, I then need to click to the network drive, then click the appropriate folder, then click the appropriate subfolder. This happens for every export, it doesn't remember the subfolder and I have to go through the whole process for each file. There has got to be a better way, isn't there? We use the AS400 to run the inavigator system. Thanks for your help!

    ...it changes the file to a text file. What do you mean "a text file"? What kind of file is it supposed to be? If I export the file using the inavigator... What do you mean by "export" with inavigator? The only "export" that I've seen is the creation of a NFS EXPORT over a directory, but that shouldn't have anything to do with My Documents. Please explain the actions that you take, what kinds of files you're working with, what version of iNav you're using, what OS release is on your iSeries and what PC OS you're using. Thank you. Tom

    Note that a better way for .most files that will be used by Windows is first to create them with an appropriate CCSID and probably then to access them from a mapped drive shared out of your AS/400. For accessing .PDFs, for example, that are stored in a directory on your AS/400, you shouldn't need iNavigator at all, except perhaps to create the share in the first place. (Though even that isn't strictly required; it's just the easiest way to create shares for a Windows network.) Just access stuff the same way you'd access things on a Windows server -- use Windows Explorer. Tom
