Could Anyone give me an example of the FTP script that would allow me to do 
this so that my System/36 can access the files on the AS/400?  

Regards,

Keith.

On NT server put then into a directory accessible via FTP.

On the AS/400 write a simple FTP script and have the AS/400 FTP the files
to some library.  If you want to use them as flat files (Program defined files)
they should be usable as is.  If you want to use them as DB2 files, create the
DDS and create a PF with the field lay out.  After you FTP them do a
CPYFILE fromlib/fromfile tolib/tofile FMTOPT(*NOCHK).

Jim Langston
