400.  I have had fiddled with the SAVDLO/RSTDLO command combinations to do
this but have had no luck.  Thought I was onto something when I brought up
the QDLS IFS on both machines within Windows Explorer and did a drag and
drop operation.  It worked great, every thing maintained its folder
hierarchical structure under my new "root" folder.  I was feeling real
cocky about what I had just done until I found that this operation had
dropped all the folder and document descriptions of which I need to keep.
Oh well.  Any suggestion will be greatly appreciated.

I'm not surprised that you lost the folder/doc stuff, since that's reall
DLO-specific stuff, not IFS. You will definitely lose these things if
you're trying to put these things somewhere other than /QDLS.

I think you should stick with the SAVDLO/RSTDLO thing. Save on the first
machine, FTP or SNADS it over, restore on the other. Then use CPYDOC (or
MOVDOC), one of the Office APIs, to put things wherever you want.

Or here's a wild one! Maybe it can't be done, and it's only for
professionalsódon't try this at home.  <g>

If you are on v3r7 or higher, there's a thing called NFS (network file
system). With this you can 'mount' a remote AS/400 onto your file system
and have it look as if it were located on the local. I don't know, tho',
whether Office will know about it. Anyone know?
