Saving a Transfer Request

You should save a transfer request, especially when the request will be executed repeatedly. This eliminates the need to create a transfer request every time a request is executed. To save a transfer request, do as follows:
  1. Specify the information needed for transfer, using the iSeries→PC Transfer window. See Creating an iSeries-to-Workstation Transfer Request for an explanation of how to specify the required data.
  2. After specifying the necessary data, click Save or Save As from the File menu of the menu bar.

    The Save Transfer Request File As window opens.

  3. Specify each item, referring to the following explanation, then click OK.
    File Name
    Disk to which data is to be saved. Specify a file name or diskette file name. The default extension is TTO. Extension TTO identifies a file as a transfer request file.
    This item can be used to add a short explanation of a transfer request, as required. The explanation can be up to 40 characters in length. This explanation is saved with the transfer request, and displayed in the list of transfer request names. It is useful, therefore, for identifying a transfer request.
  4. The system asks whether the saved transfer request is to be registered in the PC400 folder.

    When you click OK, the transfer request is registered as an icon. Subsequently selecting this icon transfers data according to the registered data transfer request.
