Data Transfer from AS/400

Hi List,

Every month I need to download a number Fastr Reports to PC.

Currently, I'm doing the transfer report by report (using Client Access).
But this is tedious.

I am wondering whether it is possible to set up a sort of scheduling or
maybe even write a CL to automated the data transfer so that it will run
automatically at nite (like a sleeper job).

Any idea whether this is possible? If yes, how do I set it up?

Thanks alot.

Regards,

May

May,

You probably would want to look into some type of 3rd party software, i.e.
something like RJS Software, Monarch, etc.. As far as I know there is no
way to do this with native World programs.

Hi May

As you siad the FASTR can be run as sleeper jobs. However to do a transfer
automatically, there are two options:
1. AS/400 supports automated FTP as a sleeper job. See AS/400 help on FTP.
With this the files can be downloaded to a PC with a specified IP address.
2. A program can be writen in Visual Foxpro or Visual Basic which can be run
in a shceduler. The program launches by itself, uses ODBC to connect to
AS/400 and downloads the files.
We are regualrly using the second approach.

You could set up a CPYTOSTMF and FTP the resulting file to an NT server.

Scheduling a connection to the AS400 is the tricky part of what you are
proposing. C/A's help show how to make a .bat file that you can schedule to
run from your NT server or use the AS400's remote PC command and schedule
that. But again, scheduling the connection NT to AS400 becomes an issue.
Either way, we're talking about 2-3 hours of set up (or more) depending on
your expertise when it take you 10 seconds of tedium to start the C/A
transfer only once a month. I don't see much of a gain there for the effort.


That said, using ODBC in Excel and setting up a template would be a good
solution as well, assuming the format stays exactly the same each month.

If you do become interested in a 3rd party software, check out Compleo by
Symtrax. We download all of our FASTR financials at monthend. Works
extremely well.
