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.
