Question & Answer
You may have a save file (SAVF) that is sitting on the IFS and you need to get it into a library. Or you may need to get a SAVF that is currently in a library and place it on the IFS
SAVF is located on the IFS and would like to move that into a Lib/SAVF:
CPY OBJ('/rhdieser/savf.file') Name of my SAVF on the IFS. The file extension could be ".file",".savf", or even blank.
TOOBJ('/qsys.lib/rhdieser.lib/savf.file') "rhdieser.lib" is the library and "savf.file" is the destination file (file will be created)
TOCCSID(37) If the SAVF was FTP'd - the CCSID is usually wrong.
What you see on the IFS:
==> This file was FTP'd to the system. The CCSID ended up being 819
SAVF is located in a library and you need to copy that to the IFS:
CPY OBJ('/qsys.lib/rhdieser.lib/savf.file') When referencing a SAVF in a library - always use the ".file" extension
TODIR('/rhdieser') IFS path where the SAVF will be sent to
Notice the difference on the IFS.
==> The CCSID of the resulting file ends up being 37 (you can see this via option 8)
==> The file has the attribute of "SAVF"
