Hi All,



I have a query related to IBM MQ File Transfer . Is there any restriction on the type of file that it supports for transfer?



I have read that it supports both text and binary formats. But, by binary format does it mean .zip,.xls etc. or even some custom formats like .mt ?



Any support is appriciated.



Thanks and Regards,

mqusr

Binary transfer supports any file format.

Text transfer does a code page conversion and end-of-line translation. Eg. Your nice Windows format text file will end up on UNIX system as a UNIX format text file. The transfer will fail if there are characters in the source file platform that cannot be converted to the destination file platform.
