Dear Sir ,

I am using BPXBATCH utility for SFTP the file from mainframe to windows server, facing issue for binary files having packed decimals values , output formatting is not same and downstream process on windows is failing while validating the file.

I have used below in configuration to tackle binary file in BPXBATCH config

EOL=nl;
IMAGE=binary;

Batch job is completing successful. While validating the file , I see some junk characters & position of the data is getting shifted .

Please advise .

Regards
Shalva

Hi Sir,

As suggested , we tried running job without using EOL, but job failed with message "EDC5129I No such file or directory. (errno2=0x053B006C)"

But if EOL is added in config then job is completing successfully and transferring file but in bad format
