I am looking at alternatives, but would still like to know what went wrong.

More testing. When I changed the Where clause to " sistore#='717' and
siperiod=20120420" it still blew off. But, if I closed the data transfer
dialog box, restarted it, and used this syntax, it worked. Apparently, it
seems, once data transfer gets this kind of error, at least, changing the
options doesn't do one a whole lot of good; one has to start from ground

What are the users doing with the downloaded data? Are they loading it into
Excel? If so then google for SQL2XLS. That will run an sql statement
against DB2 and create an excel spreadsheet in your stream file system.
Then you can email that to them. No user interference. If you need more
granularity than that provided by SQL2XLS then look at:

Couple of questions regarding the Data Transfer function of iSeries Access
(V5R4 at OS V5R1).

First, I am trying to retrieve a select group of records from a table on
System i for output to a PC file. In the "Change Data Options" panel I

Where: sistore#='717', siperiod=20120420

Order By: sitype, sicategory

I get a CWBC01047 error: The iSeries server application disconnected the

I tried changing Where to sistore#='717' and siperiod=20120420 but got the
same error.

If I do not use the Where and Order By options (no selection), the
works fine.

Second, Is there any way, once I get the selection to work, to make the
selection dynamic; i.e., change the selection without interference from
user? Can the data transfer be invoked from a System i CL or RPG program
with, perhaps, dynamic options much like the RUNQRY command? I couldn't
find much about data transfer in the Info Center.
