Hi Steve

In addition to the other suggestions you can get there by creating one large result field in the query something like:

'"'||field1||'", "'||field2||'",'||numfield||'

Once you have your single calculated field output it to a file and run your CPYTOSTMF. Being able to preview the data helps get the formatting right as a minor bonus.

You could go further and create the separators as a calculated field to make it a bit simpler

You'll need to check the concatenations and quotes as it's a while since I last did this.

It's not necessarily the way I would do it, but for a quick and dirty solution or where a program is too much trouble it's a handy approach.

I'd like to be able to use CPYTOSTMF to copy a file created by a query but I get an error message

'Object is not a file or is a file with attributes not
supported by this command. '

is there a way around this?
