During FTP from AS/400 to PC all trailing blanks are striped
(see also question http://www.experts-exchange.com/jsp/qManageQuestion.jsp?ta=as400&qid=20174347)

For the most of our systems the problem is solved but one of the systems is still running V4R1 and..... that is not supporting the FTP LOCSITE command.

So if anybody have any sugestion.....

Murphey

Hi,

   I don't think that there is many solutions with OS/400 V4R1 in such a case. You will have to add an end character at the end of each record so you won't lose the trailing blanks but of course you have to write all programs accordingly. Maybe. the best solution is to upgrade this AS/400.

I know it doesn't help a lot but...

Bye.

Thanks Olidel,

Upgrading is unfortunately impossible. I have already thought about an extra end character, but that needs a lot of programming on both sites.

On this moment I send it to one of the other AS/400's and let it send for me but that ia an inferior solution.

Regards

Speed guns, See the earlier question. The problem with BInary to a PC is that unless you preonvert the file to ASCII it becomes unreadable after the Put/Get hence my CPYTOPCD suggestion which does actually create an ASCII file.
