Save your excel file as a text file or CSV. This will produce a flat ASCII file that can be transferred to the mainframe.

File -> Save As... -> Text (Tab delimited) (*.txt) or CSV (Comma delimited) (*.csv)

FTP would be the most likely method, if you have the authority to use it.

Hi,
Once you save the Excel file By giving option 6(command) in the ISPF menu if you select the ACTIONS ---> Send file you can do it.

Hello Anand,

Please review this topic as to the requirement. Ashish wants to pull data from a spreadsheet on the pc and upload this data to the mainframe.

if that excel is having only one column... then why does it need to be in Excel ? convert that to a txt file or csv file and upload to mainframe.

For upload options, check your emulator.

If you dont have any, check how to use FTP in your shop.
