Copy AS400 file to a different AS400 folder

Copy AS400 file to a different AS400 folder

(OP)
Hello,

I am fairly new to the AS400 OS I have been trying to copy a file for a couple of days and I am a bit stumped. When I look at the path in the iSeries Navigator it shows '/QSYS.LIB/EV.LIB/BMC.FILE/BMC.MBR'
and I would like to copy to a folder called "mybat" when I look at the path for the "mybat" folder this is what I see '/ROOT/HOME/mybat'
so I thought I could do

CODE

COPY OBJ('/QSYS.LIB/EV.LIB/BMC.FILE/BMC.MBR') TODIR('/ROOT/HOME/mybat') 

but get the following message

CODE

Object not found.  Object is /root/home/mybat/BMC.MBR. 

not sure exactly how to do this. Ay help is much appreciated

RE: Copy AS400 file to a different AS400 folder

(OP)

I finally was able to get it working, I was looking at the top directory, did not have the file name and I was using the "TODIR" instead of the TOOBJ commandhere is the complete code

CODE

COPY OBJ('/QSYS.LIB/EV.LIB/BMC.FILE/BMC.MBR') TOOBJ('/HOME/mybat/BMC.MBR')
