mainframe TAB delimited files in windows server

Postby shankar_dh » Fri Oct 21, 2016 6:40 pm


we are creating TAB delimited files in mainframe files by writing hex '05' between each field.Its perfectly fine when we FTP using option 6 with transfer mode as text.
But, when we supply our mainframe file to transfer group. They are sending it to windows server using via TIBCO mailbox in text mode. When they open the file after they received in their windows server they could only see dots between the fields (like the way we see in our mainframe files when we open in browse mode)

Any hint where is going wrong and how to get it resolved ?

This is NOT a mainframe issue and hence not likely to be addressed on this forum. You need to contact the vendor for TIBCO mailbox, explain the issue, and work with them to resolve it.
