AS400 outqueue files need to go to pc for archieve.
Posted on 2010-09-01
My First Ask. Be gentle. I joined today and have searched myself confused.
Problem: Need to get files from the AS400 output queues moved to a pc drive but need to keep the splf date on the file listing for furture retrieval. EVERYTIME I MOVE A FILE USING NAVIGATOR, TO MY PC, THE PC FILE IS DATED TODAY. I NEED THE ORGINAL FILE DATE. Would be able to put groups of files back to AS400 to see date if that is necessary. These "dayend reports" files are a must archieve item. I have iSeries Nav and ibm Access for win V5R4mod0. Files are stored in outqueues with a monthly name. Oct, Nov, and on etc. FTP? Will ftp work? How do I get to the outqueue TO get all 4,000 files in there. Is there some kind of wild card to get them all (LIKE GET THE WHOLE OUTQ). I really need all files in each outqueue associated with dayend reports moved to my PC.
Further these reports are generated daily with the same filename with a different date. Moved to a monthly outq but now taking 20% of our space so need to move to windows drive. Got a 2TB on my system just for this purpose.
