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

There are various methods to do this. Some of the considerations would be the size of the file and the frequency of the transfer and the connecttivity of the two machines.

You can use FTP, a DDM file, send the file as an email attachment, copy to another media for transfer, and otehr options.

If it is a small file, I might use DDM.A large file I woould probabky use FTP.

    How are the two systems connected? Especially, are they in the same network or is it an internet route? Are the two systems at the same OS level? If not, then what are the two levels? Is this a one-time transfer or will it be repeated regularly? How large is the file? -- Tom

    If networked together FTP or DDM. If not your other choices are external media provided they are both the same. In you do not want to go the external media route then you can  1.Create a SAVF of the file  2. Use FTP to download to PC (bin mode).  3. Send file via e-mail  4. FTP the SAVF to new i-Series (bin mode)  5.RSTOBJ.. Make your choice taking Tom's questions into consideration...

    If networked together, I'd skip the SAVF and just use SAVRSTOBJ for save/restore. In many cases depending on the file (e.g., source members), I'd use FTS. -- Tom

    A quick addendum to Tom's recommendation of SAVRSTOBJ: you'll need to ensure ObjectConnect is loaded on both systems.

    Good point. It's been so long since I haven't had it as one of my basic options that I forgot that many single systems don't install it. Networks with multiple AS/400s possibly should have it as a default. It's a no-charge option to install. -- Tom
