No easy way, but a couple things come to mind.

CPYFRMIMPF will throw the first record out for you, and copy the rest, but
only if it finds a field that won't fit or is alpha when it's expecting
numeric.  It throws an error though.

you could monitor for the error (CPF2845) and check the file yourself - the
problem is that the message doesn't tell you how many records were omitted,
but you do get a message (CPC2955) telling how many records WERE copied.

If you can trust that if you got ANY records, then the copy ran ok, this
would be a way to do it.


----original message-------

Anyone have any better ideas for deleting the first
line (headings) in a stream file in the IFS?
