You have done nothing more than make a statement in your post.

Are we to assume that you want some help, or that you just felt the overwhelming desire to tell us about your transfer ?

So what did you use for the transfer.
What differences are there in the data.
What was the input format of the file.
What attributes did you specify to perform the transfer.

The above are all of the things that you should have mentioned if you want some help.

Thaks for the response and apologies.

So what did you use for the transfer.
--->i had used the send/receive option that is available in mainframe menu bar
What differences are there in the data.
---> first 4 rows consists of header and this header appears after every 30 rows. and out of these one row is actually the header.for now i just want to transfer the file as it is.
What was the input format of the file.
---> input was the data with fixed length
What attributes did you specify to perform the transfer.
--->i had specified--format as text--> EBDIC

Show the differences you are getting in the file. I have done FTP with your specified options and could transfer the file onto Mainframes successfully.

Hello,

When you saved the file in WordPad, i suspect you saved it as a .rtf file (the default). This is not a miainframe-friendly format (IMHO).

If you open the file and save it as a .txt file, you should have better results when you upload the file. Do not specify EBCDIC for the transfer. Use ASCII.
