Fixed Length File converted to VB File on FTP from Unix

Post by JaggaJasoos » Fri Jul 07, 2017 6:02 pm

Greetings Mainframe Gurus...!!! :)

I was FTPing a file from Unix box to Mainframe. The file at Unix end is of length 409. When FTPed to Mainframe it creates a file of length 256 VB (Variable Length) format and has truncated records.

What can be the cause and how can it be rectified?
