Hello,

We have a WebFOCUS server on an IBM Mainframe. We can only look at our Masters via MRE for here:

Repository > Data Servers > (Server Name) > Cataloged Path > Data

This access is quite bslow. Does anyone know how to exposrt these masters so we can access them offline via Windows?

Thanks,

Pietro.

Pietro, we have an IBM AS400
We have installed on our pc's a piece of ibm software called "Client Access Express for Windows, Personal Communications AS400". It is the mechanism for exploring that ibm box, creating masters and acx files.
One of its options is a button that lets you download files. I download all my masters and acx files, and have a fex to read them locally for documentation and search purposes.
Your method for accessing your main frame should provide you with a button or gimmick for file xfer. IBM would have given you such a tool at some point, I imagine.

Susannah,

Thanks for the info. For some reason, the download function of the IBM Communications program we're using doesn't work. Even if it was working, I'd be able to download the masters one at a time. I was hoping for a faster method as we have dozens of masters.

Cheers,

Francis
