Status during Transfer

Display can be specified as the output device, when the current transfer request is created or changed. This sends the transferred record to the screen. On the screen, each record is displayed on one line.

Each field in a transferred record is converted from the iSeries, eServer™ i5, or System i5® data type to workstation code.
Note: The workstation receives the iSeries, eServer i5, or System i5 records in order and then writes them to a temporary file of the default directory in the default drive (usually, the directory in which PC400 is installed). The maximum number of records that can be transferred is 4096 records, limited by the amount of records that can be stored in free space of the default drive.
When Disk is selected as the output device, the following actions are performed:
  1. The workstation file description is written to a workstation disk file or diskette file according to the Save File Description File specification. (If Save File Description File has not been specified, this procedure is not performed.)
  2. The transferred records are written to a workstation disk file or diskette file.
