Consult the File Aid manual should be step 1.

Any particular reason that it must be file aid.
Do you know for certain that file aid is capable of doing this.

Also, without showing any research made by yourself or any tries at doing things yourself, please do not ask for solutions without first showing that you have at least made some effort of your own.

"HELP forum" does not equal "Do it for me forum"

And I know nothing about File-Aid, but I have to imagine that to do this would require a compatible desktop component?

Also, be aware that most sites do not have local machines set up to receive files -- and many have policies against it. Most of the time you must initiate the transfer from the local machine, if it is allowed at all.

My first question would be - who raised this request and why?

A quick look on File-Aid manual says:
Quote:
File-Aid is designed for applications and systems programmers, File-AID is an interactive, full-screen system for editing, browsing, defining, copying, reformatting, scanning, comparing, and printing VSAM, IAM(tm), PDS, PDSE, BDAM, and sequential files under TSO/ISPF.
it does not talk about FTP etc. so I believe, what you asked for can not be done using file-aid.

Hello and welcome to the forum,

Suggest you reconsider . . . As others asked - why fileaid?

That surely cannot be a business requirement (or a technical requirement for that matter). It is merely someone's preference.

Suggest you modify the requirement to "I want to transfer a file to my local drive". Then it becomes a rather trivial matter to pull the data form the mainframe to the desktop (provided this is permitted in your envronment).

If the amount of data is small, you might also consider sending it to yourself via e-mail. . .
