We are trying to FTP a flat text file from windows into our AS/400 (iSeries). Position 52 to 58 of the text file represents a number that is put into a AS/400 field that is signed 7.2. How would you put a negative number into the AS/400 field using FTP? Whatever are in the seven position in the text file is exactly placed in the AS/400 field. If we put a negative sign in front of the number, the negative is also in front on the field in the AS/400. The negative sign must be behind the number. If we File Transfer the text file to the AS/400, the negative number is dispayed correctly. We want to automate the process so File Transfer will not work for us. Appreciate any help you can give.
