I am doing my test on V5R3 as well??
It runs, just no file is placed in the directory


Can you show me your CPYTOSTMF command?


Thanks

John

Works for me at v5r3.

I have a client that is adamant they need a directory in the IFS where

Apparently this is not allowed in windows but the customer does not
care "they are only going to use files in the IFS"

I can create a directory in the IFS that ends with a period



When I use CPYTOSTMF to create a file in the directory, the command
runs fine with no errors in the joblog only a message CPCA082 "Object
copied"

However there is no file in the directory, and I cannot find the file
anywhere.



Any ideas?

How can I get files into the directory ending with period?



Thanks in advance for any ideas and/or suggestions



John



P.S. Just for fun I tested this process with a period in the middle of
the directory name (rather than at the end) and all worked fine
