Re: Trouble Shooting Client Access TTO



fixed

David,
The FDF is a Field Definition File and is only needed for upload from the
PC.

Yes, the TTO is from an old version of CA. These guys were on 4.3 with
who knows what level of Client Access for years.

There seems to be three files associated with a query. The .TTO, a .TTX,
and a .FDF. But for this query there is only a TTO and TTX in the windows
folder. I wonder if something happened to the .FDF and I just have to
rebuild that using the Client Access Manual Transfer?

Is TTO the old extension? iAccess 7.1 uses .dtf (from) and .dtt (to)...

In any event, there are just text files with a basic .INI format. You
might be able to look at a working example and figure out what's wrong.

I am trying to trouble shoot a Client Access TTO icon that does not
perform the download from the i to an els on a windows drive. The
error is
we get when we double click on the TTO icon is -

"Invalid FIle Type. It is either not a transfer file request type or
the
file has been corrupted"

I do not see any tutorials out there on how to set up and fix TTO's.
Can
someone point me in the right direction here? There is a 'from file'
out
on the 400 to download and a properly named spreadsheet out on the
drive.

And yes, I know there are much better ways to download but this client
really loves their TTO's. Thank you.

subject: Re: SQL created table slows reporting tool

in this case i was just taking a peek at the raw table. So it seems that
what you are saying is we have to make either stored proc or
logical/views
on the Ibm i. this is fine, This is what we currently do on the dds based
PF's.

In any case, be sure to set CR to have the SELECT done on the server,
that is, on the IBM i - NOT on the PC - in the latter case, the entire
file has to be downloaded, THEN the query is run against it. Bad Bad
Bad!!

There are other confusing things about this question, but I'll leave my
questions to what I asked already.

Actually I'm not saying that you have to make either a stored proc or
LFs or views.

You do need to be sure that you tell Crystal to run the query on the
server, not at the PC. Crystal at least used to, by default, run all
queries on the PC, which means that the entire table had to be
downloaded from the server, then the query is run against that "full"
copy.

I like the idea of using a view - to limit the columns downloaded - and
maybe the rows, due to selection. You will still benefit from making the
query be run on the server, then downloading only the results. I think
this is especially the case, because you will likely not want to make a
view for each WHERE possibility - so if your Crystal report has
parameters for selection, again, you need to run the query on the server
- it's a setting somewhere in Crystal, last I saw, which is years ago!

subject: Selecting interface for outbound ftp

We have 3 Ethernet cards with six assigned ip addresses.

We would like to be able to open our firewall to outbound
ftp for one of those addresses.

How can the 'from' address be selected when starting an ftp session?

There is nothing on the strtcpftp command, but maybe some kind of
job override?

TIA, lance
