This is exactly true, the easiest way to create an FDF file is to download a
file that is setup with the same fields and all and save the FDF file it
creates, then use that FDF to upload the file. If you have Client Access
Express, it includes a Wizard that will write one for you on the fly...
pretty
neat.

I haven't used CA is forever, so this may be a shot in the dark, however I
do recall eons ago that when you uploaded a file you chose between a data or
source file.  For a datafile you had to have a .FDF (file description) file
on the PC to tell the AS400 how the fields are on the AS400.  If you
uploaded as source, it did not have this requirement, however it added the
bytes to the end of the file, because this is where the last update date and
time stamp is kept in a SRC file.  Hope I am lucky!
