Sorry, I messed up the syntax.

To put a file on a PC from the AS400, it's
PUT [library name]/[filename].[member name] [pathname on PC]

to retrieve a file from a PC to the AS400, it's

GET [pathname on PC] [library name]/[filename].[member name]
Sorry for the confusion.  I was going too quick before I took my son to

Chris Gonzalez

The syntax that I've always used is:

GET [library name]/[filename].[member name]


If you are transferring to another system, say a PC, then you would complete the
sentence with the pathname in the syntax of the target system.  For instance, to
transfer a file to your PC from the AS400 you would say:

GET [library name]/[filename].[member name] [pathname on PC in DOS syntax].

This has always worked for me.  I hope it helps.
