Urgent !! Creating RMS file with FTP(from dos to VMS) or change it in VMS side with DCL to set...

Hi this is a very urgent problem for me, thanks all for help...

In Open VMS V7.3-2 there is a RMS file name is MURAT.

Pls see the result of original VMS RMS file's(MURAT) DUMP/BYTE, DUMP/BLOCK results attached here.

I want to create a file with FTP from windows(dos) to VMS system in ascii (or binary mode)

OR if cant create the same file with ftp on VMS side i may need the help to transfer a optimum file and convert it to final format with DCL.

Ijust did a ascii transfer in DOS FTP under XP to VMS (7.3).

The result is directly ok, t.i. a variable length VMS file (like your file).

So, what is the problem ?

Notice that data in file has CRLF chars.
The file is as
HEADER
PAYMENT MESSAGE-1 DETAILS
PAYMENT MESSAGE-2 DETAILS
PAYMENT MESSAGE-3 DETAILS
TRAILER

and PAYMENT MESSAGE DETAILS composed of CR LF and FF

In PC side i created the header , pym message details and trailer in the file.
After i ftp it to VMS i want to see only 5 line on ,(with EDIT) 1 header 3 message and 1 trailer


When i ftp in ascii mode there is many many records due to CRLF's in payment message details.
When i ftp in binary mode there is only one record in file(due to fix lenght 512 it seems may more line )

if you're in a hurry, why don't you zip the file, ftp it as binary, then unzip on vms.

FTP is impossible for it. I need a DCl script for it. And create another submission

$ UNZIP :== $FASTRX$DEV:[EXTRANAL]UNZIP.EXE
$ UNZIP application.ZIP

this will extract the contents of application.zip to your current default dir

unzip -h also works
