Are there any blanks or other non-displayable characters in the name as you saved it? Did you trim blanks from the name? Did you try searching for it with an asterisk after what you THINK is the file name? ;-)

This is a strange problem, and I am not quite sure what question to ask,
but here goes.
Here is a high level fly by:
Using API's inside RPGIV to create and write a text file to the IFS.
Then using ajar to zip it up for FTP to a third party.
The problem is, when I get to ajar, the file I just wrote out there is not
found. I can go out and see the file if I use QSH, but if I try to do
something like ls filename, the file is not found? see below:

> ls QACXQ0ZQ5R
ls: 001-2113 Error found getting information for object QACXQ0ZQ5R. No
such path or directory.
$

As you can tell, the file is there, and should be readable, yet when I try
to list it specifically, that 001-2113 error shows up.
Thing is, when I was using CPYTOIMPF to write the file, I had no problem
zipping it up. Now that I am writing the file directly from RPG, it can't
be found. Is there a file end code that is missing, or is there something
else that I am missing.
