Hi All,

Can anyone guide me with the information that I need in my FTP control card to achieve the following:

I need to transfer the file along with the Block size information for a VB file. I am using the following LOCSI subcommands:
LOCSI TRAIL READTAPEFORMAT=V RDW NOWRAPrecord

However with this command I am not able to send the Block size information.

Thanks,
SMahapatra

Hopefully, as documented, you're also using STREAM and BINARY?

Quote:

RDW
Specifies that variable record descriptor words (RDWs) are treated as if they were part of the record and are not discarded during FTP transmission of variable format data sets. This applies to transfers in stream mode only.
Note: RDW information is stored in binary format. Transfer files in binary mode to avoid the translation problems that can occur if you transfer this binary field in EBCDIC or ASCII mode.
