Save Time When Uploading a SAVF
It seems like every piece of documentation I’ve seen regarding uploading a save file (SAVF) to an IBM i partition, the instructions call for the creation of an empty SAVF in advance before the FTP transfer. You don’t need to do this! Save yourself the trouble and do it the fast way.
All you need to do is transfer it to QSYS file system through namefmt 1 (or naming format 1), or more specifically the IFS equivalent of the QSYS location.
If you wanted to put a save file called myfile.savf in QGPL, your FTP put command would look like this:
Put myfile.savf /QSYS.LIB/QGPL.LIB/myfile.savf
