Hi all,

My customer is FTPing a file and doesn't know how to send it with his FTP pgm software with the carriage control set for RECFM=FBA. It is a report with lots of carriage control in the 1st byte.

I tried to use IEBGENER to create an empty file using
DCB=(RECFM=FBA,LRECL=133,BLKSIZE=27930). Then just use IEBCOPY to copy it in there. But it is not working.

Does anyone know a utility to change the RECFM of a dataset please??

Thanks so much,
Sharon

Why not have the customer use FTP command
Code:
quote site recfm=fba
to simplify things?

He is not using JCL to FTP it to the mainframe. It is some kind of FTP software that I am unfamiliar with.

I know ICETOOLS can do it. Can you show me please??

FTP does not require JCL. You can even type the quote site recfm=fba in a Windows DOS prompt FTP session and it will take the command. The quote site is standard FTP and should work no matter what platform, no matter what implementation of FTP, as long as it supports the standard FTP commands.

Why do you want it in FBA instead of FB?

sure beats looking yourself, doesn't it?

funny, subject is 'Convert FB file to FBA'.
I am sure few if any would think of using that as search key.
