I am using CA file transfer.  If I tell it to use the fdf, it transfers for
again each record in the 400 is layed out different depending on the lengths
in the csv record.  for example:
csv record:     
rec1-   "19960202","Preauthorized withdrawal","100.00"
rec2-   "19960202","Check#",1000.00"

So when it transfers to the AS400 it basically leaves it like that on each
line so I can not say Check description is in positions 13 thru 19 and
amount is in positions 21 thru 30, because it's not on every field. 

If I say to transfer by file type and select CSV I get an invalid token on
the transfer in the SQL statement, which I have no idea what to look for or
fix there.
