Hi,

I'm trying to FTP multiple files from a server to mainframe file. the file names will change its not static, for this i tired the following code,


Code:
//INPUT    DD  *                     
XXXXXXXXXXXXX.COM                     
loginid                               
password                             
CD \xxxxx\in                         
lcd 'TXXX.XXXXXX.XXXXXX.RETUR2'       
locsite lrecl=120 blksize=0 recfm=fb 
ascii                                 
MGET *.out  (append                   
//                                   


When i execute the job i'm getting the following error,
Code:

Append is not a valid parameter for mget. Try removing it.

Possibility 1: TXXX.XXXXXX.XXXXXX.RETUR2 is a PDS, in which case you cannot MGET *.out files since "<aything>.out" would NOT be a valid member name.

Possibility 2: TXXX.XXXXXX.XXXXXX.RETUR2 is the high-level qualifier under which you want to save the files, in which case one (or more) of the files you are attempting to transfer do not meet z/OS file name requirements. The total length of the DSNAME could be more than 44 characters, or a file name may be more than 8 characters without a period, or there may be invalid characters (i.e., ones that z/OS does not support) in the file name.
