Hi,

Is there anyway to transfer the file to mainframe with dated qualifier.

Like:

lcd 'N123456.'
get PONS.txt PONS.DATA (REPLACE

I will get the mainframe file as N123456.PONS.DATA
I want to get it as PONS.DATA.D010110 (DMMDDYY format)

We can achieve this by copying, but while FTPing itself can we able to achieve this.

You'll either have to use a program to create the proper get statement with the desired date value, or you'll need to include the dataset name with the date in your JCL, controlled by an external control (such as your job scheduling system perhaps?).

If you used a SET statement in the JCL to set the date values, then you could do this:

//JOBNAME JOB ...
//*
// SET DMMDDYY=D010110
//*
...
//FTP EXEC PGM=FTP,...
...
//FTPFILE DD DSN=PONS.DATA.&DMMDDYY,
// DISP=(,CATLG,DELETE),UNIT=...
//INPUT DD *
...
get PONS.txt //DD:FTPFILE
...

You could use some of the examples shown here to build either a get or put command.
