If access to a program is not available you might try Access. This type of conversion can be done easily with Microsoft Access. Although not as quick as CPYF, *MAP, *DROP, it can be done. The method I have used was to run a Make table query in Access of the 6.0.04 file and a make table from 4.05 CD file, locally on the PC. Then do an append query and populate the 6.0.04 file from the 4.05 file. Update any other newly required field in the 6.0.04 file. Once the pc version of the 6.0.04 is clean and ready do an append query to AS/400.

Now the 6.0.04 version has more fields than the other one. Beside that, there are some fields that have same name in both files but with different attribute. I tried CPYF with *MAP *DROP, but it did not work (*DROP does not work if different attribute exists). *NOCHK did not work too. Any other idea?
