Actually, you _CAN_ do the same thing with a LF, declaring all 
     packed fields as signed, but for the purposes of distribution to a 
     PC, you still have problems with implied decimal values. 100.00 
     will look like 10000, with no indication of decimal point.

No, FTP will not translate binary or packed decimal.  That is why I create a
work file.  I define it for FTPing AS400 data to PC and only use character
or signed numeric fields.  Works Great.

Chris,

Will FTP handle binary, zoned, and packed decimal?
