My M.O. is:
1. Download the table as CSV (using ACS or your favorite tool)
2. Remove the CSV data, but leave the headings
3. Copy-and-paste the new data into CSV
4. Copy the CSV to /tmp/ using RDi
5. Use an RDi User Action to run CPYFRMIMPF

subject: Importing data from a spreadsheet to a PF

We've got a customer who is trying to populate a PF from a spreadsheet.
He's currently trying to do it through iAccess (or whatever IBM is
calling it this week), and it's giving him a lot of trouble, telling him
field lengths in the target file are too short. He has tried lengthening
fields, and they still come up short.

I'm guessing he's trying to send it as some form of CSV, but I'm not

I can't remember the last time I tried to do something like this. I'm
about to try some experiments myself, on our box, FTPing it into a STMF
and attempting to CPYFRMIMPF it.

Anybody have any ideas?
