To FTP the file to dataset xxxx.xxxxxxxx.xxxx.xxx.xxxx on MVS you need three
single quotes (''') on each end of the DSN, as in:
put ourlibrary/ourfile.member '''xxxx.xxxxxxxx.xxxx.xxx.xxxx'''


Does that help at all?

OK I ment PWD on its own, but it seems the line above answers my question.

230 O045 is logged on.  Working directory is "O045.".        

1) Do you know where that folder is located?
2) Can you copy your file to that folder directly

The O045 is my TSO id.

That did not work either, but someone just showed me how to do the FTP using Attachmate.

I will award you the points, for the help.

Thanks
