Your syntax for the tofile looks correct.  Is it an externally described
file?  CPYFRMSTMF and CPYTOSTMF does not support these.  To get around this,
create a flat file with the same record length as the database file (CRTPF
with RCDLEN(___) and no DDS).  Copy the stream file to the flat file.  Then
copy the flat file to the externally described database file by specifying
FMTOPT(*NOCHK) on CPYF.   You can also use a source file for your flat file.
Just specify FMTOPT(*CVTSRC) on the CPYF command.

How would you use this command.  It keeps giving me an error on the DB2
file.   If I try just specifying the library/name it says it must be a QSYS
file.   So if I specify  QSYS.LIB/MYLIB.LIB/MYFILE.FILE/MYMBR.MBR   it gives
me an error that the file attributes are not supported  (that an external
file or source file with more that 3 fields are not supported??)   
 I looked this up in the cl reference help and the syntax for the
qsys.lib..... seems okay. 
What syntax are they asking for?
