Unless you are at V4R4 with PTF's SF61859 & SF61937 which provides the capability to specify the Stream File Code page(STMFCODPAG) on the CPYTOIMPF command. If you are at V4R3 and possibly V4R2 you can create a file in the IFS using CPYTOSTMF specifying the Stream File Code Page(STMFCODPAG), Example: CPYTOSTMF FROMMBR('/qsys.LIB/Source.LIB/Source.FILE/Source.MBR') TOSTMF('/tmp/ASCIIfile') STMFOPT(*Replace) STMFCODPAG(*PCASCII) ENDLINFMT(*CRLF) The Source member can be any source member or it could be a Program Described file(i.e. Flat File). The Source member or Flat File should be small or empty because the data is not to be used in the target file. You can then use the CPYTOIMPF command to copy to this file specify *REPLACE and your data will be converted to ASCII. Example: CpyToImpF FromFile( TRANS ) TOSTMF( /tmp/ASCIIfile ) + MbrOpt( *REPLACE ) RcdDlm( *CRLF ) + DtaFmt( *FIXED ) StrDlm( x'05' ) This will place a Carrige Return/Line Feed at the end of each record and a TAB between fields. Hope this helps!

It looks as though I am not getting it to Convert to ASCII. I have provided it a CCSID of 00037 and I have tried others as well. Maybe I am missing the point and this command does not do the conversion. If this is the case then I know of other was to accomplish what I need. ____________________________________________________________________ Get free email and a permanent address at http://www.amexmail.com/?A=1 +--- | This is the Midrange System Mailing List! | To submit a new message, send your mail to MIDRANGE-L@midrange.com. | To subscribe to this list send email to MIDRANGE-L-SUB@midrange.com. | To unsubscribe from this list send email to MIDRANGE-L-UNSUB@midrange.com. | Questions should be directed to the list owner/operator: email@example.com +---
