Contents of an IFS folder into a database file??? Published by: Chris Proctor on 03 Jan 2012 view comments(2)

Happy New Year, everyone! A co-worker of mine asked me if I new of a way to extract the file names within an IFS folder to a database file. Off the top of my head I couldn't think of anything except the old dump contents to a printout, copy the printout to a flat file, parse out the data, etc, etc....

I hoping someone here may have found a slick way to handle this. I'm sure he'd appreciate any input!!


Thanks! Chris
