Steve has a question about transfering an ASCII file from the IFS to a mainframe.
He writes, "I'm being told that I can't transfer an ASCII file from AS/400 IFS to our mainframe. It transfers OK using Connect:Direct, but the file is unreadable. I can quite happily read the file on the IFS from my NT workstation.
"Is it not industry standard practice to transfer files from the IFS to a mainframe? If so, what sort of translation needs to take place to make it readable on the mainframe?"
What do you think? Is it possible to transfer the file?
