Making RCVNETF Work Published by: CurtisB on 10 Feb 2012 view comments(6)

I am seriously looking at replacing the FTPIng of save files with SNADS. I am working on automating the receive process. The files get sent very nicely, and I can receive them without a problem, except:

 

When I go intoWRKNETF on the remote IBM i, and prompt appropriately, I get the following screen:

 

                          Receive Network File (RCVNETF)                 

                                                                        

 Type choices, press Enter.                                             

                                                                        

 From file  . . . . . . . . . . . > 'QRPGSRC'     Character value       

 To file  . . . . . . . . . . . .   *FROMFILE     Name, *FROMFILE       

   Library  . . . . . . . . . . .     CURTLIB     Name, *LIBL, *CURLIB  

 Member to be received  . . . . . > 'AM0719'      Character value, *ONLY

 To member  . . . . . . . . . . .   *FROMMBR      Name, *FROMMBR, *FIRST                   

 

When I enter the above screen, I receive the source member (or save file when I am receiving that) appropriately to the proper destination.

 

When I enter the following command from the command line (or generate it in a program I am writing to automate the process), I get an error:

 

                                                                                

 Selection or command                                                           

 ===> RCVNETF FROMFILE(QRPGSRC) TOFILE(CURTLIB/QRPGSRC) FROMMBR(AM0719) TOMBR(*FROMMBR)                                                                         

 F3=Exit   F4=Prompt   F9=Retrieve   F12=Cancel   F13=Information Assistant     

 F23=Set initial menu                                                           

 No files compare to the specified selection.             

 

This is CPF0860:

                 

                         Additional Message Information

 Message . . . . :   No files compare to the specified selection.              

 Cause . . . . . :   There were no network files that compare to the file,     

   member, and number values you specified.                                    

 Recovery  . . . :   Use the Work with Network File (WRKNETF) command to find  

   out what files exist.                                                       

     Specify a file using one of the following:                                

     --The FROMFILE parameter on the Receive Network File (RCVNETF) command.   

     --The FILE parameter on the RCVNETF command.                              

     --The FILE parameter on the Delete Network File (DLTNETF) command.        

     Use the member (MBR) parameter and the number (NBR) parameter on the      

   DLTNETF command to specify one or more file members that exist in the       

   network files.  Then, try the request again.                                

                                                                         Bottom

 Press Enter to continue.     

 

Entering the file number does not make any difference; putting the file name in quotes, as in the prompted screen, doesn't either. Neither does logging on as security officer.

 

Any ideas why the command line version does not work, but the prompted one does? 

 

Thanks for your help.
