Hi Peter,

Got a chuckle out of "into a non-IFS folder (out of the IFS)"

Reminded me of debates with a friend over whether the IFS includes QSYS. I think I convinced him when I pointed out you can access a QSYS file through the IFS, e.g. edtf '/QSYS.lib/mylib.lib/myfile.file/mymbr.mbr' (and that applies to externally-described files too). Since you can do the same thing with a file on a PC on the network when QNTC is working, one could say that PC is "in the IFS".

So the only thing that would not be in the IFS would be a file inaccessible by QNTC or QFileSvr.400.

The file is a tab delimited file created automatically on the AS400 but I
am not going to send to any other library nor any AS400: I want to put the
file into a non-IFS folder (out of the IFS). Is in one of our servers.
Eventually, this file will be manually opened and formatted in MS Excel by
an user.
