This the document I wrote on this subject a couple of years ago.

A customer would like to write a Lotus Script agent that creates a file in
the IFS (Integrated File System) in ASCII format.  When the domino server
creates  the file it is created in EBCDIC format.  This is working as
designed. The file is created in the native code page of the operating
system.

Solution:

If you require the file be in ASCII format one solution would be to use
product 5799-AAS which allows you to convert a file from EBCDIC to ASCII
in a C program
This is a sample make file.


# Example Makefile     #
##################################

# This makefile shows one method of implementing ASCII C/C++ Run
# Time for the AS/400 along with a build process that doesn't implement
# ASCII C/C++ Run Time for the AS/400 in order to contrast the
differences.

##################################
# Assumptions                                         #

#Directory C:\cttasw\include contains standard include files on a local PC

        Subject:        Write to IFS with Lotus Script



This document expires on 12/19/2002

I want to write a flat file to the IFS on the AS/400 but when it gets
there
it is garbled. I took a file from the AS400 DB and did a

CPYTOIMPF FROMFILE(STORE/SUSERDATA) TOSTMF
('/lotus/notes/Inotes/ACHexport.txt') STMFCODPAG(*PCASCII) RCDDLM(*CRLF)")

on the command line and it worked great. How can I write from lotus script
to the IFS and have it readable in ascii format?

Below is the script I am playing with.

TIA
