If you can open it in excel, save it as a csv file.
Then upload it into the as400

I have received a file from an outside agency that chokes
CPYFRMIMPF. The fields are pipe delimited. I have looked at the
raw file and don't see anything REALLY obvious - the file is several
hundred lines long. I can open this thing in Excel just fine, but
there is no option to save it with pipe delimiters. There is a free
text portion, which, I suspect, prompted the need to use the pipe as
a delimiter.

The agency has converted this file multiple times, and the results
are the same. Other files are just fine. When I attempted to use
an error file, I got nothing in the created member.

Is this why some of you loathe CPYFRMIMPF? Any suggestions on how
to isolate and fix the error(s) causing CPYFRMIMPF to choke? Not
sure I have the time to write the program to split this thing apart.
Can SQL be used in some way to identify or clean up the file?
