RE:     RE: source file download via CA/400

Try Writing an RPG program that reads the source file and writes directly
to the IFS (QDLS if you want)  to a .TXT or .DOC type file. 
You can even do it in batch or some automated vehicle.  
Make your own command give it the source member name,  To PATH name
and there you have it.   I'm doing the same thing right now. 
See Midrange Computing Dec 97 Ted Holtz article for a sample pgm.
Julian Monypenny on News/400 web for other ideas.

You can even read the IFS(PC) files into an RPG program.
See the thread on PC FILE FORMATS
