• Subject: Getting SaveFile from PC World to the AS/400 via CA/Win

I sent a client a Save File via Internet Email.  This save file 
was created on the AS/400 via normal methods (CRTSAVF & SAVOBJ).

I then FTP'd down to the PC world.  I can then FTP it back to 
another AS/400 and it works just fine (the trick is to create 
the save file first).

I then Email'd the file from my PC via the Internet.  My client 
does not have TCP/IP available so FTP is not an option.  He is 
trying to use CAWin/95.  When he does the file transfer, he gets 
a message that says     "Not a Valid Database File".   If he 
creates a plain old flat file (crtpf rcdlen(xxxx)), it 
transfers, but of course is no longer a save file so can not do 
a rstobj on it.

My question being, What is the trick to getting  this to work 
via CAWin?

Unimportantly, starting TCP/IP on his as/400 is not an option.
