I have an executable that is being scheduled to run via Windows Task Manager and must write a flat file from a Windows machine to an AS400 programatically.  The AS400 needs log in information.

So, in other words, when I do something like:

                    sw = new StreamWriter(this._APDeliveryPath + "APDIST" + sDate + ".txt");

this._APDeliveryPath is expressed something like \\as400server\folde\folder\folder ...

I don't have access to the AS400 without logging into it.

Can this be done programatically?

Yes it can be done programmatically. What you will need to do is impersonate a different user while executing the code that does the copy. You can find examples and sample code at the following links.
