Create a physical file on the 400 with a record length of 528.  Copy the   
data from the PC into this file.  Create a save file on the 400.  Write a   
program to read from the physical and write to the save file.  Restore.   
 Done.

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.

TIA
