ANSI Flat file creation in E1 8.11

I need to create a flat file on a networked pc server from within E1 8.11 that uses an ISeries as the Enterprise Manager. Does anyone know how to create the file directly to the pc server without using the IFS?

You can solve with a TC :

First, it will read all of your data and create a flat text
file somewhere in your AS/400 IFS
Second, at the end, it will execute B34A1010 BSFN, which
in turn will execute an OS/400 CL command.
In that CL command you'll write the FTP instructions
to put your flat file into the Windows server.
Sebastian, My understanding is that TC or any BSFN that created flat file does not run/work on iSeries server. Apparently it has issue with creating a file on IFS. We are on 8.96.F1 with 8.12 and want to create an export file on enterprise server. Currently we are running the TC locally (on windows) and moving file to IFS. Any helpful ideas, appreciated.
