I have an iseries 520 and am wondering how I would transfer an excel file or a text file back into the 520 into a library.  I can convert the excel I create into a text file if that is easier.

There are multiple ways to accomplish what you're trying to do.

One way involves using MS Access as an intermediate step. You suck in the Excel sheet into Access and export the Access data to an ODBC database defined to point at the AS/400. This method is "quick and easy", but the resulting data usually requires some massaging.

Alternately, you could save the Excel file into a comma-separated text file and use the CpyFrmImpF command to import the data into a database table. This method requires significant tweaking and testing, but it works well once you get it worked out.

HTH,
