I've read a bunch of articles and searched the archives, but I haven't been able to find anything similar to my problem. I'm having trouble finding documentation for the Windows side (iSeries Access Remote Commmand).

My use case is a batch job that produces a field delimited text file for import into a Windows application. The application runs on a server, and the data contains some sensitive information, so I'd like to have the batch job copy the file to the Windows server, then tell the Windows application to execute its import function.

I can execute commands Windows like 'move' and 'copy', but the Windows app's import program always completes without errors but also without actually doing anything. I believe the Windows app uses a relative path to access the import file, and that somehow the REXEC environment causes problems with the current directory.

I'm trying to get the vendor to fix the import program so that I can specify an absolute path to the import file, but I was hoping someone might know of a workaround in case I can't make that happen.

Please help!
