Hi,

I'm trying to use the autECLXfer.ReceiveFile method from a terminal macro (using VB-script). Tried to google for examples and found some shreds.

Created the macro below:

Code:


[PCOMM SCRIPT HEADER]
LANGUAGE=VBSCRIPT
DESCRIPTION=Test view menu
[PCOMM SCRIPT SOURCE]
OPTION EXPLICIT
autECLSession.SetConnectionByName(ThisSessionName)

REM This line calls the macro subroutine
subSub1_

sub subSub1_()
        autECLSession.autECLOIA.WaitForAppAvailable

        Dim strFileName, strDataSet, strOptions
         
        strFileName = "Y:\b.MFData\Testxx.txt"
        strDataSet = "'DATA.SET(TESTXX)'"
        strOptions = "CRLF ASCII NOCLEAR"

        On Error Resume Next
        autECLSession.autECLXfer.ReceiveFile strFileName, strDataSet, strOptions
        If Err <> 0 Then
                MsgBox ("FOUT:" & Chr(13) & "(" & Err.Number & "-" & Err.Description & ")")
        End If
        On Error Goto 0
         
End Sub
 
 


It seems to work (executed on a TSO session using PCOMM, ispf option 6).

However: I do not find my file in the directory that I stated.

... when using the SendFile method, I can send files from the directory towards a dataset...

That strikes me as weird...

Can any of you help me spot the thing I do wrong? It's probably something very simple, but just beyond my reach...

By the way: I want to use VB-variables in the call, so I can use it more flexibly...

Thanks in advance!
