looking for assistance with code for AS400 FTP (from an outside server into PF or IFS)
multiple files in the same directory with variable names ('edi850_i_*')
FTP commands would be executed from the AS400
 I have created a new IFS directory but the FTP commands I have tried don't seem to recognize the directory
My command file (FTPCMD1) ---
user pswrd        
LCD FORDIN                            --- this is the IFS directory I created                
CD FordHS\Inbound --- this is the location of the .dat files
MGET edi850_i*            
quit                      

MYFTPCL ---
              DCL           VAR(&INTNETADR) TYPE(*CHAR) LEN(19) VALUE('999.999.99.9')
              MONMSG   MSGID(CPF0000)                              
              CLRPFM     FILE(FTPMSG1)                              
              OVRDBF     FILE(INPUT) TOFILE(FTPCMD1)                
              OVRDBF     FILE(OUTPUT) TOFILE(FTPMSG1)                
              FTP            RMTSYS(&INTNETADR)                          
              MONMSG    MSGID(CPF0000)                              
              ENDPGM

assuming that FORDIN is not a library - this trick can work only in IFS


user pswrd       
locsite namefmt 1
LCD /somepath/FORDIN 
CD FordHS\Inbound
MGET edi850_i*            
quit

Can you define the "/somepath"
in IFS I created a directory called FORDIN
How do I find the path?

Note that [LCD FORDIN] refers to a relative path. Unless FORDIN is a subdirectory within user'scurrent directory, it won't be found. Assuming that FORDIN is atop-level directory off of root, the FTP subcommand should be:

LCD /FORDIN

Having the slash as the initial character causes the absolute path to be used.
