We currently use the method you employ. And yes, we are uploading data into BPCS. Not on my project list right now, but one thing under consideration might be to stop using Client Access. Load up FTP server on the PC. Have the 400 do a GET to retrieve the file to the 400. You'll lose the cool things that CA does, like parsing and mapping. But you can probably whip up a program on the 400 to do that. Another option. Again involves loading FTP server on the PC. Then use FTP on the 400 to execute a command on the 400 to start up CA on the PC. We used to start up ancient versions of CA with batch files and piping from the autoexec. Haven't played with this with the new versions of CA or CA express. Perhaps it is possible. But then I have this pet conspiracy theory that the government tried to reduce unemployment by breaking anything that was streamlined, automatic or ran in batch. Instead hoping you'd hire more people to work around the clock to click on icons. (Getting ready for the weekend.) Rob Berendt ================== Remember the Cole!

Both machines are on the same network. An operator is currently doing this manually from the NT server workstation. They would like to trigger this from the AS/400 startup job instead. The connection allows an upload from the data collection software dcCollect (iwork) to BPCS on the AS/400.
