Not that I've found. Even a binary transfer from one AS/400 to another
doesn't keep the record structure intact. As close to convenient as you
can get is to tuck what you want into a save file, and have a pre-created
save file on the other end that's used for all incoming save files. You
just have hope no one drops off another file in the time between your
send and the next incoming file.
