Okay, so you are running the S/36 emulation on an AS/400.  Any file
on the AS/400 you can use in your S/36 environment using OVRDBF.
If you want to place the file in QS36F then you don't' have to do an
OVRDBF.  You can transfer the file via OS/400 FTP.

Just because you are running S/36 emulation you can still run any and
all OS/400 commands.  In fact, you can place OS/400 CL commands
in PRCs and they run fine.

Now, as I understand it you have one machine, right?  You can transfer
the files using FTP, client access, or whatever.

I don't think I am understanding the problem fully.
