Jim,

No, we can not use any of the OS/400 commands because we are not using 36 
environment on the AS/400.  The S/36 is set up as a virtual machine on the 
AS/400.  Once a user is working in the S/36 the operating system is still SSP 
and any files on the AS/400 can not be accessed.  Only files on the S/36 can be 
accessed.  The two machines act as if they were totally independent even though 
the S/36 is really only an object on the AS/400.  Does that make more sense??

Regards,

Keith.

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.

Regards,

Jim Langston
