Of course, another option could be to read the stream file directly with a
RPGLE program, process the line and write it directly to your DB file with
the format you need. I recommend that, if you have the time, check out
Scott Klement's IFS routines. They are really very easy to use.

Using CPYFRMSTMF is, most of the times, a big pain in the butt. Just ask
Rob :-)
