I am having trouble picking up the latest GDG from the mainframe a placing it on the ftp server. The ftp commands do not seem to interpret (0) as the latest gdg. If I put in the G000V00 number then the file transfers fine. Please help.

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

Once FTP became a major player in our shop during the late 1990s I developed a desktop application at the PC level, using Fujitsu COBOL for Windows.

Using Active/X FTP from Mabry Software – don’t think they are around anymore – I queried the catalog for the GDG base. My program would construct the commands to retrieve the latest generation via its qualified DSN.

Almost all of my data transfers to/from the mainframe were accomplished in this way.
