    Unanswered: FTP spanish char

    Morning,

    I am not an os390 guy, but was asked if there is a way to ftp a file to an OS390 with Spanish char in it. It seams that even when using "bin" on the ftp it transforms char into something else.

    Thank you.

    I don't believe ftp has anything to do with it. What you probably need is a conversion between different codepages. That's probably as much as I can say given the problem description you've provided.

    I don't think you want bin, you want ascii to ebcdic conversion of a text file. I know that 3270 emulation programs will do this conversion with their file transfer tools, once you get the file onto Windows (assuming the 3270 emulator runs on a Windows client).

    Cougar,
    is it a binary file? What kind of file?
    I ftp ascii files with german chars and euro signs without any problem.
    But it would be shredded using binary.
