Pinned topic Copy/paste window file (txt) to mainframe

‏2012-09-26T13:19:20Z |
Hi,
I created a txt file which contains text (éaèçioôü), tab and text ( see file in attach).
When I copy and paste this file to MVS. the file is created but
the tabs are still existing.
I expect that the tabs are changed by spaces during the ftp

Is it possible that the ftp changes tabs to spaces?
may be somewhere in the preferences?

regards

Eric

    I forgot the file will be used as a sequential data set

        My idea would be to check the editor for the .txt file in Window--Preferences and under General-Editors-File Associations.
        The other place (but I do not see anything special) is the Remote System--Files category, look for *.txt files and see the File Transfer mode, but as we only have two choices I do not think we will be able to set the correct parameters.

        So with the first one, associate a .txt file to for example an System Z LPex Editor and in this way we won't have the tabs

      Hi Eric. I'm a little confused about what you're trying to do - and what the problem is. Could you please explain in greater detail? Are you trying to create a z/OS sequential dataset and can't (through RDz)? Are you saying that you'd like the tabs to disappear or to be honored when you copy/paste?
