Hey I read that article (like he said it's mostly based on Ray Bills
presentation from COMMON - Good presentation, Nice Guy)
I keyed it in, and it works!!!!!!!!    In 18 years of writing RPG
I finally wrote a program that directly Reads from and can Write to an
ASCII PC file.  I started playing around reading an .XLS file type and
an .DIF file type,  in Debug watching the "records" coming in.  
Weird stuff (with a captial 'W'),  Annnnyway, I wrote (like it shows)
to a comma dilimited file (.CSV) in a named directory in the IFS and 
then brought it up with Excel.   

If you don't 'See'  QSYSINC it still might be there.  Are you authorized
to it??  It was on our machine (V3R2).

It's a whole new world boys and girls.  The IFS is in EVERBODY's future.
Now then, I can't wait till Notes and Java are native.  I may at least
be able to interact with their files with RPG.

(Jon P. if you're listening.  I did it!! Thanks for the help)
