Okay, I'm still learning this stuff myself, so I've not done this...but it's supposed to work from what I've read. You can create and share an IFS folder with any PC. You simply map the IFS folder to a network drive on the PC. This much I know works because I've done it. Attached is a Word document from a project design that explains how to share an IFS folder and map it to a network drive on a PC. If you use some examples from others on this list to create a COBOL program that reads DB2 files and writes CSV records to a stream file, then you can have the program write the stream file to the shared/mapped IFS folder. Users can access the CSV file from their PC just like they access any other file in a mapped drive. The iSeries job scheduler could run the COBOL program that writes the stream file. Just some ideas...

I would like to 1) have the operator run a nightly job that executes the COBOL program that creates a .csv. 2) Somehow EVOKE (might not be the write term) a job to have the data transferred from the .csv to the common area on our host PC. Every Morning I come into work and use the AS400 data transfer facility to transmit data to a user. I sure would like to get away from having to do this. Thanks ..
