FTP DB2 file from Iseries to our FTP server and converting to Excel

FTP DB2 file from Iseries to our FTP server and converting to Excel

FTP DB2 file from Iseries to our FTP server and converting to Excel

(OP)
I need to FTP a file from our Iseries to our FTP server as an Excel file .xml so we can then FTP this file to an outside company.  When I do this and bring the file up in Excel the data is readable(except for one numeric field) but doesn't line up in columns.  When I use client access it is fine.  I need this process to work with no human interaction.

Any help is greatly appreciated

RE: FTP DB2 file from Iseries to our FTP server and converting to Excel

I'm guessing that the numeric field in question is defined as packed. FTP does not like packed fields very much.

I would use CPYTOIMPF to copy the file to a comma-delimited file in the IFS, and then transfer that.

CODE

CPYTOIMPF FROMFILE(YOUR_LIB/YOUR_FILE) +
TOSTMF('/your_IFS_Path/your_stream_file.csv') +
MBROPT(*ADD) RCDDLM(*CRLF) FLDDLM(',')

Tibi gratias agimus quod nihil fumas.
