Not sure I'm getting your question.

If your 3270-Emulation program has a file-transfer option (they usually do), then it should be all point-and-click to initiate the file transfer (IND$FILE) process via your 3270 session.

Hello,

These days (since almost all of the "3270" connectivity is done via tcp/ip), it is more common to use ftp to pull data from your mainframe into a folder on the desktop or a server.

Most desktop tcp/ip software comes with an ftp client built-in.

I'm not sure what this means

To transfer a file some additional commands must be issued - it just a matter of which ones/ which transfer method. I'm unaware of any software that will just grab the right data from the mainframe and place it in the right place on the win-based system with no interaction (commands) from the user.

Please let us know if you'd like any other info.

You can try the third party ftp clients like SMARTFTP. This is awesome GUI based and very easy to use, list files from mainframe, just right click on the dataset names copy and paste. ..drag and drop.

Or build FTP jcl to put the file on server and schedule the job, This has no manual intervention automatically file is copied.
