Booth's reply raises some questions: 1. Are you tranferring the file PC-->400 or 400-->PC? In either case, you can do this all from the PC, I think, with redirected input to the FTP command. The concept is similar on both platforms—use redirection, which on the 400 is known as OVRDBF. 2. Is there an FTP server on the PC? You need one if you are starting FTP from the 400. 3. Are you using the 400 signon for security reasons, passwords passed in the clear, etc.? The chapters on FTP in the TCP/IP Configuration and Reference have some examples of processing FTP in batch, which apply equally well here to what seems to be like an unattended execution of FTP.
