thats funny - i actually started with your suggestion but was not achieving
the correct formatted stmf result.(probably didn't have the cpytoimpf parms
just right).
Consulted with a couple of vets at my company and they suggested the cpyf

got it - i guess i'll need to play with the correct parms in cpytoimpf to
achieve this correctly.

thanks John

So what is the solution to do a cpyf to a flat text to be sure the packed
are going to be clear text in the flat text file?

The solution is to not use CPYF at all. The whole point of CPYTOIMPF
is to copy data from a PF into either a flat file or stream file. In
this case, you would go straight to stream file.
