Thanks everyone for comments. What if I use binary with FTP , then will it cover all data types (eg . CHAR, DECIMAL, Pack DECIMAL etc)
I want a method to FTP data among LPARs for all data types ?

You are asking to invent perpetual motion. There is no single method of using FTP that will work in all cases for all data types. Variable length binary data files must be transferred in stream mode, as binary, with LOCSITE RDW and SITE RDW specified.

Thanks, I haven't used LOCSITE RDW or SITE RDW in my earlier FTP but it worked OK. Does it mean one of these params has been setup by default ?
Is their any reference available where I can find which FTP params I should use for relevant data types/file types please ?

If using HELP from within your FTP session doesn't give you what you need, and your System Admins/Storage Admins can't help, then you can find what you're looking for in one of the z/OS Comm Svr: IP User's Guide and Commands manuals.
