Here's a CL program I wrote to test the CPYTOIMPF command. Seemed to work
for me.

 STRPGM:  PGM                                                           
                                                                        
 /********************************************************************/

 /*          THIS PROGRAM COPIES A DB2 DATABASE FILE TO A CSV        */ 
 /*          FILE IN THE IFS. THE CSV FILE IS CALLED ifstest2.csv    */

 /********************************************************************/ 
                                                                        
             CPYTOIMPF  FROMFILE(IFSDEVLIB/IFSTEST2)                +   
                        TOSTMF('/ifsdevlib/ifstest2.csv')           +   
                        MBROPT(*REPLACE)                            +   
                        STMFCODPAG(*PCASCII)                        +  
                                                                        
  ENDPGM:     ENDPGM

Hope this helps.

Thanks,

   You could also try using CPYTOSTMF something like this:

   CPYTOIMPF FROMFILE(mylib/db2file)      
             TOSTMF('/home/mydir/test.csv')
             MBROPT(*REPLACE)              
             STMFCODPAG(*PCASCII)          
             RCDDLM(*CRLF)                  
   This will generate a .csv file in any IFS directly from a DB2 database
   file.  We've even put things on our IPCS or IXS (NT server -- whatever
   it's called now) using the /QNTC path in the IFS.
