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.

Hi All,

I've been asked to post this question to the list;

How would you initiate a Client Access connection from an NT server to
an AS/400, from the AS/400? 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.

TIA,
Kathleen Kostuck
