I am ftping a multi (record) format file to a client that is translating to an edi transaction. The reciever needs each record to be sent in the length defined in the program for each record format. For example,
If record a is defined as 100 positions, then the
ftp'ed record should be 100 positions
If the record is defined as 50 positions, then the
ftp'ed record should be 50.....and so on.
It appears that the ftp'd file record length is adopting the length of the longest record format regardless of which record format is sent. Is there any way that I can FTP this file and have it contain the proper record lengths (the ones that I used when creating the file) of each record type rather than sending each in the longest length?
