I tried all the options allowed on the transfer.  If you pull it up on the pc
using notepad or edit or whatever, you see one continuous string.   Of course,
the CSV, DIF, EXCEL, DOS RANDOM and DOS RANDOM2 donot meet my requirements.
With CPYTOPCD you get one line for each record.  What I want to do achieve the
same thing CPYTOPCD does with the CA transfer.  Currently I transfer to a shared
folder using CPYTOPCD and then use it on the pc for raw file purposes.
