john,

we have flat text files on our system.
we sftp them to certain 3rd parties.
most 3rd parties accept our files by first doing a cpytoimpf to ifs with
following parms
dtafmt(*fixed)
rcdlm(*crlf)
strdlm(*none)
stmfcodpag(*pcascii)

so we convert from EBCDIC to ASCII and place on the ifs
then we simply sftp that file to them.
they accept it.

a new 3rd party we are working with on a completely new file we have never
sftp'd asks for it in "binary"... which i think they mean EBCDIC
I cannot come up with a combination of cpytoimpf parms to accomodate
exactly what they want.

the funny thing is they say they do a conversion on their end to convert
from EBCDIC to ASCII (just like we do for others first before we sftp it),
but when I sent them that file, they said it is not in right format.

I guess i need to get more specifics back form the recipient.

There was a colleague that manually transferred the file to the ifs and the
3rd party said it is in correct format.
Here is all i have as of now on how they did that... "I did a binary
transfer from lib/file... to my pc"

so what ever he did manually, i need to automate... and hoping with
cpytoimpf

ok, let me phrase my question another way...

given a flat text data file with contents such as...

record1......................................x
record2.................................x

How can i achieve a stream file that produces...


record1......................................xrecord2.........................x

essentially records back to back, with no whitespace.

is there away?

No doubt there is a way. Probably quite many ways.

But I strongly suspect that there are also ways to bypass this kind of
stuff completely. Easy ways. Many ways. Ways which would probably be
more desirable than what you've specified here.

Once the data is on the PC, then what happens to it?
