Copying data using data-transfer functions

The data-transfer applications in the IBM i Access Family licensed program have the advantage of an easy-to-follow graphical interface, and automatic numeric and character data conversion.

However, data transfer requires the installation of the IBM i Access Family product and requires the use of both PC and IBM i resources and communications between the two.

If you have IBM i Access Family installed on the PC and your system, you can use the data transfer applications to transfer data between stream files and database files. You can also transfer data into a new database file that is based on an existing database file, into an externally described database file, or into a new database file definition and file.
