Hi all,
We required tranfering flat/VSAM file to be downloaded to Windows/Unix box in EBCDIC format.

Pls note, we are not required transfer/converting in ASCII format.

Thanks in advance,
Anna.

Your problem is not very clear.
Prima facie I think selecting binary mode
for file transfer will do the trick for you.

- for a sequentioal file... no problem
- for a VSAM file repro to a sequential file and see point 1

transfer in binary mode and... that' s it

You might(will) face issues on processing it on windows...
but that' s not in the scope of this topic

from the windows side...
for ftp before the get use "binary"

for a 3270 emulator wander thru the download pull downs and check the proper checkbox/radiobutton/pulldownmeny

if You are using pcomm receive command.... look at the docs
