It appears you're using a flat file to receive the data.  If you know the
maximum length for each field in the file you're uploading, try creating a
file with dds that has a field defined for each field in the record.
Download the AS/400 file you've built so you'll have an fdf file.  You
should be able to do a csv upload.  If you don't know the lengths of the
fields in the file you want to upload, or the file has more than one record
type, you're stuck with doing some programming, I think.
