WS: IBMCFG: Transfer a Spooled File to a PC Application Using iSeries Navigator (Doc ID 627372.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 10, 2021

Applies to:

JD Edwards World World Writer - Version A7.3 cume 4 and later
JD Edwards World Computer Operations - Version A7.3 cume 4 and later
JD Edwards World Technical Foundation - Version A7.3 cume 4 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


For release A9.1 and above: Functionality exists to send a spooled file to the PC through the Import/Export program. The use of iSeries Navigator outlined in the steps below can be used instead, if desired.

For releases A7.3 and A8.1: When World Writer is used to create a physical file on the iSeries ( AS/400 ), only detail records are contained in the physical file. There is currently no way to get summary information into a physical file using World Writer. Similarly, DREAM Writer does not have an option to create a physical file. Using IBM AS400 Client Access iSeries Navigator (formerly Operations Navigator), it is possible to simply drag/drop or copy/paste a spooled file to your PC where it may be used in applications, like Word or Excel, or attached to an email.


For technical users.
