Hi Mark
I have a feeling that you mistyped the size of the field
07 XHDATE Packed 2 0
surely it should be
07 XHDATE Packed 6 0

All,

I am having an issue with CPYFRMIMPF. I have a VB program that
creates a delimited file. I'm trying to use CPYFRMIMPF to copy the
data into an iSeries database file. I'm getting a failure because of
reason Code 9, 9 - The data for the field *N is not valid for the
data type of the
TOFILE.

Is there any way to see for which field the data is not valid?

Here is the data stream:
55505, '1', 0, 'H', '55505', 20, 090804, 092444, 090428, 513, 'ES',
'CRAYOLA', 'CRAYOLA', 'CTR0361141003', '0', 20090424, ' ', 0, ' ',
3400, ' ', ' ', ' '

Here is the file layout:
01 XHCNTR Packed 5 0
02 XHTRNS Char 1
03 XHDST# Packed 2 0
04 XHRECD Char 1
05 XHBOL# Char 15
06 XHBLCC Packed 2 0
07 XHDATE Packed 2 0
08 XHHHMM Packed 4 0
09 XHYMD Packed 6 0
10 XHHM Packed 4 0
11 XHTIMZ Char 2
12 XHEDIC Char 17
13 XHEDI2 Char 17
14 XHCPO Char 22
15 XHRELS Char 15
16 XHPODT Packed 6 0
17 XHXREF Char 15
18 XHMSWT Packed 10 3
19 XHMSPC Char 5
20 XHMSLQ Packed 2 0
21 XHMSWQ Char 1
22 XHMSUM Char 2
23 XHMBOL# Char 15

And here is the command I'm using:

CPYFRMIMPF FROMSTMF('/home/mwalter/ob856hord.txt')
TOFILE(X12856HORD)
MBROPT(*REPLACE)
RCDDLM(*CRLF)
STRDLM('''')


BTW, I use this exact same procedure for another file, and it works
just fine. This one has me really puzzled.

Thanks,

Mark
