Hi,

I am transferring an iSeries file to a .csv file on my PC.
At the moment it puts quotation marks around each field in the .csv file

e.g.
"1","","","","084069685559690","","110315","110315",""

Is it possible to get it to transfer the file without the quotation marks

e.g.
1,,,,084069685559690,,110315,110315,

Client Access File Transfer Function doesn't give you any control over the CSV format.  Options:

Download as CSV using CA-FTF tool, and use a PC-based editor (I like NotePad++) to remove all of the double-quote characters.  As long as your data doesn't contain embedded quotes, this works OK.

Download as tab-delimited and use PC-Based editor to replace tabs with commas.

Use CPYTOIMPF commnd to create a delimited file without quotes, and then download the stream file created using FTP, Navigator, NetServer, etc:
CPYTOIMPF FROMFILE(GARYP1/TEST1)
          TOSTMF(test1.csv)    
          STMFCODPAG(*PCASCII)  
          RCDDLM(*CRLF)        
          STRDLM(*NONE)
