When I FTPd the file from a different mainframe to ours, apparantly the FTP decided to split just some of the records into 2. So...the date fields that I was getting a s0c7 on were acually some other field(s) - on that "2nd" record. At least I read up on binary and how it works!
so here's a big NEVER MIND.
Now I'm trying to figure out how to fix my FTP - There's got to be a glitch with VB records or something...
You're welcome - there is usually someone around (or will be fairly soon) when there are questions.
Suggest you check with your ftp support and see how ftp is configured at each end. You might try building a very small variable file and dump the file before transmitting it and after the data is received on the target system.
When i transmit data to a mainframe, i pre-allocate the receiving file.
You also need to determine which mode of transmission is being used.
