As of December 1, 2020, Focal Point is retired and repurposed as a reference repository. We value the wealth of knowledge that's been shared here over the years. You'll continue to have access to this treasure trove of knowledge, for search purposes only. Moving forward, myibi is our community platform to learn, share, and collaborate. We have the same Focal Point forum categories in myibi, so you can continue to have all new conversations there. If you need access to myibi, contact us at email@example.com and provide your corporate email address, company, and name.
In your FOCEXEC you can execute a command line by preceding it with the System and then the command. In windows you'll need to map a drive. In other systems you'll need to use the syntax appropriate to the system. You can get more information on this by searching for "operating system commands" in you Dev Studio help or on the tech support search page.

Are you uploading from the browser client to the WebFocus server or from the WebFocus Server to another server of mainframe?
From the server have WebFcous write an FTP script and call the OS to have it run. Or just have WebFcous write to the other systems disk or a disk share by both systems
From the browse client write a script to write WebFocus disk Then call WebFocus to process the file. Or just send the file up in blocks which will fix in a 4096 character web query string (yes this is not elegant but I seen it work for small files and it reduces security concerns)
