I have used ICE TOOL to convert EBCDIC file to ASCII file for file transfer from zOS to zOS UNIX Directory. Mainframe file has four lines. But when user views the ASCII file, all four lines are displayed in single. Could you please help me to know if we can transfer the file sin such a way that in ASCII file data is displayed in four lines instead of single line. Thanks,

Yes, you can.

The details depend on your transfer mechanism. You have documentation, presumably?

We are doing file transfer to USS directory using the sample code available over internet as below. but all data appear in single line

//COPYSTEP EXEC PGM=IKJEFT01
//INMVS DD DSN=EV6946.USS.TO.MVS,DISP=OLD
//OUTHFS DD PATH='/SYSTEM/tmp/EV6946.MVS.TO.USS2',
// PATHOPTS=(OCREAT,OWRONLY),PATHMODE=(SIRUSR,SIWUSR)
//SYSTSPRT DD SYSOUT=*
//SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=*
//SYSTSIN DD *
OCOPY INDD(INMVS) OUTDD(OUTHFS) BINARY CONVERT(NO)
/*

Input file has details in following format:
Header
dataline1
dataline2
trailer

But ASCII file at USS directory is displayed as
Header dataline1 dataline2 trailer
Thanks

Why copying as BINARY ? AFAIK, binary won't recognise the newline characters....
