That's because it's a zipped XMIT file. Unzip it and the upload it to a FB(80) data set on z/OS and receive it.

Or use one of the PC programs to extract the REXX from the XMIT.

Or go to "that" :mrgreen: system and grab the execs.

Probably an even better suggestion than my left-handed corkscrew, or the metallized flufdrosser. :mrgreen:

Hello,

Unless i'm missing something, you now have the "mainframe format".

Suggest you go back to the CBT site and read their instructions for downloading and using their offerings.

It will be worth your time to learn how to do this as there will probably be other things that will be porovided this way.
Hope this helps,

xxx.ZIP files have been around for more than 20 years. The xxx.ZIP files in the CBT web site usually contain one file, xxx.XMI. This file contains mainframe data. Send the file as a binary file to your mainframe, to a dataset allocated with RECFM=FB,LRECL=80,BLKSIZE=nnn. Like ZIP files, XMI datasets contain a dataset; for CBT data, this dataset is usually a PDS. In a TSO READY prompt or ISPF option 6, enter RECEIVE INDATASET(xxx), where xxx is the entire dataset name you prepared on the mainframe. The RECEIVE command will prompt you for the final name of the dataset where the data in the XMI dataset will be sent. If you just hit Enter in response to the prompt, RECEIVE will replace the high order qualifier in the dataset name in the XMI dataset with your userid.

Once the RECEIVE command has constructed the dataset, you have to open the dataset and figure out what to do next. There is usually documentation of varying quality in the PDS; it is up to you to find the documentation and continue from there.

Hello,

Suggest you pre-allocate the file with proper space and dcb attributes on the mainframe. Then transfer the file.
Hope this helps,
