Two of the ways that you could view - 1) Use a pc to view it (notepad, wordpad, etc.); or 2) Use EDTF 'QDLS/dirname/*' from an AS400 command line to show the contents of the directory and then take the option to display it. HTH, Joe

Joe 1) I can't find the file on my PC. I searched my my Computer and did not find QDLS. Do I need to set something up on the PC to get this connection? 2) I tried entering EDTF 'QDLS/Mydir/*'. I got error message that Command EDTF in library *LIBL not found.

Try using WRKFLR and see if you can find it

Yes I can see that the document exists when I do WRKFLR and then work with documents. I am still trying to find out how to display the data in the document.

Are you using Client Access or Client Access Express? If you are using Client Access you should be able to "see" your AS400 in your network neighborhood. If you are using Express, you will have to map a drive using NetServer. There are quite a few posts on this site about how to map a drive with NetServer. If you do not use Client Access at all, I do not know how you could view the document on your pc - short of FTPing it to your pc. As for EDTF, I have only just recently started using it and I do not know when it first became available. What release are you on? Joe

I am still on V4R3. I am using Client Access. I'll look into getting Network Neighborhood set up. Is there any other command on as/400 to view the contents? Thanks.

You could always create a pf with no dds and use CPYFRMPCD to bring the file back to see what it looks like.

Thanks. Good idea.

Try the DSPF command, although I believe this requires V4R5 or higher. Chris

EDTF became standard as of V4.4. There was a version for download at IBM. I can mail you this objects. They work fine under v4.3 André Gheldof

I have copied a physical file into a folder using CPYTOPCD. I can see the PC document exists by doing WRKLNK '/' Select next level for QDLS Select next level for my folder I can see the document had been created but how can I view it? Thanks.
