I want to transfer an externally defined data file from the as400 directly into an excel file format, then send the file via email. I have email already set up. My problem is getting the file translated correctly for excel. I do not have client access. I have used cpytopcd for spool files, but don't know how to copy for an excel file. I do not have CCSID 65535 (I believe the CCSID table goes to 65533 ot 65534).
