Create a Physical file with a record length of 528.  Write an RPG program 
to ready the savf and write to this db file.  Then this file can downloaded 
to the PC.  Reverse the process on the upload.

I put together some commands to do this for object distribution.  Let me 
know if you are interested in them.

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
