I have several large reports that I will need to run before Y2K for one of the departments I support. Instead of spending days printing these reports, I would like to translate them to text files and transfer them on to our LAN, were this department can view them, regardless of the AS400's status on Jan 1. I have done the commands CRTPF and CPYSPLF (trying *NONE, *FCFC, etc) without problem. In PDM, the file looks fine. I have tried using Attachmate's Extra to do a data transfer, but it doesn't see the file at all. I also tried Client Access's file transfer, which works. But instead of the file I see on the AS400, it looks like Hexadecimal or something, completely unusuable. I have tried quite a few of the format options in Client Access, but no success yet. I don't understand what the difference is between this PF and the Physical files created using Query 400, which translate without problem. Any ideas?
