FTP Source Statement Change Dates Lost? Published by: Bob Cozzi on 24 Jan 2012 view comments(9)

I'm FTP'ing a ton of source members, and loosing the source statement change dates.

I thought (hoped?) that using MODE = EBCDIC instead of BINARY would do the trick. Nope. Still Zeros-Out the SRCDAT field on the target.

Is there a work around that anyone knows of?

I've already thought of doing a DDM file transfer instead--build the DDM file on the fly and do a CPYSRCPF to the DDM file. I suppose I may have to live with FTP not transferring everything as it should.
