Hi Don <verndor response?We have the DataExport product that will give you DBF output from either PFs or SQL SELECT statements. It uses CL commands, puts the output in the IFS. It does various spreadsheet formats, too.
I have found that using a SELECT here can be the best way - then you control the way the data is defined, to match you DBF layout.
I'm on vacation for the next 2 weeks - woohoo - but you can get a 30-day supported evaluation. Call 888.rjs.soft or email sales@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx - there is a manual for it at www.rjssoftware.com under the support tab there.
BTW, it is not expensive. </verndor response> Merry Christmas Vern At 07:21 AM 12/15/2006, you wrote:
We may purchase a software package which will accept transaction data from our MRP system. There are special file formats which must be populated in order for this package to be able to read the data downloaded from the System i.Their software wants the data downloaded to a "TransAct.DBF" file - from which then they will pick out the data and process it.I looks like the .DBF is a FoxPro or Dbase database format. How would I get the System i5 data into this format - without too much hassle? Don F.
