I'm trying to copy a database file to an IFS file, straight shot, using
CPYTOIMPF, *FIXED format. I've tried all the parameter combinations I
can think of.
All the fields are character, except the first field, and another
several more fields into the record format. I've been reassured in no
uncertain terms that these zoned fields will NEVER be negative. :-)
So it's supposed to look "identical" to the database file.
CPYTOIMPF FROMFILE(MYLIB/MYFILE MYMBR
The copy is taking the FIRST field, one of the two zoned fields, and
placing it LEFT-adjusted into the proper number of positions in the IFS
file, with blank fill.
The SECOND field SEEMS to right adjust, although it's one position left
from its buffer location in the database file.
What I REALLY WANT to do is to use a command to make a complete
duplicate of the file to the IFS, as is, as a .TXT file, as if it were
one flat record. Blank-fill is acceptable for the numerics, but
RIGHT-adjusted is expected.
