I've also made use of the STRPCCMD but it is only valid for interactive
processing.
If you're interested in trying it then you need to know that you must issue
STRPCO beforehand.

Subject:        Invoke PC Access program from an AS/400

Hello all,

Here is my problem. I have a program on an AS/400 that is used to receive
raw material. Each time a reception is accepted, I must find a way to
transfer it to an access database located on an NT server. The transfer must
be close to real time because the material just received may be used in the
following minutes and the comsuption program is in access. I was planning to
do the following: 
1- Add a trigger to the reception file to trap any changes
2- add the information that need to be transferd to a work file (or data
queue, or whatever)
3- have the AS/400 evoke a command on one PC attach to the AS/400
4- The PCcommand would be an access program to download the work file, add
its information to the data base and then clear the work file

My problem is with step 3. What are the possible alternative? what do you
suggest?
