As someone else said, ftp can take the records directly, as long as there
are no packed fields. But it takes all the records.

It sounds like you want to take only some of the records. If so, you can
use Query/400 or SQL to create an outfile. Be careful to define numeric
fields as zoned (use the ZONED function in SQL). Then straight FTP the
resulting workfile.
