If you are using Client Access you use the file transfer facility to xfer
data to a file on your PC in .csv format.  You must indicate the file name
on your PC.  Then e-mail.  
Once you've done this you can save it and next time click on the icon.

Hello:

I'm trying to export an AS/400 physical file to a comma separated
variable file in a folder so I can email the data to someone who can
open the file in Excel.  Right now I am doing it in two steps.

Step 1. Export the file:

 CPYTOIMPF FROMFILE(EDI002P) +         
           TOSTMF('qdls/folder/edi002') +
           RCDDLM(*CRLF)      

Step 2. Convert to ASCII using the COPY command:

 COPY OBJ('qdls/folder/edi002') +      
      TOOBJ('qdls/folder/edi002.csv') +
      TOCODEPAGE(*PCASCII) +         
      DTAFMT(*TEXT)     

Is there an easier/better way to do this?

Thanks,
