thanks for replying - 

to clarify, create a file with one field name (SRCDTA), copy the source
to that file, (*map *drop) and then transfer to pc?  I can give that a
try.

I need to be able to read the file from an rpg pgm, so I can insert data
into it before I blast it to the web.   Can you read files from the QDLS
without too much work?  I eventually want to do this, but I'm on a
deadline right now, and don't have time to mess with it too much.
