Uploading transport files from Windows to UNIX on IBM

How to upload transport files and support packages from Windows to UNIX System Services on IBM mainframe.

To upload transport files(of course also support packages) from Windows environment to UNIX System Services on

IBM mainframe, we use transaction SPAM from client 000-->Support packages-->Load packages-->From frontend.

Before we used: ftp, commands in USS - iconv. But is was more complicated.

Transport files must be packed to .car or .sar. For example:

SAPCAR -cf ARCH_SAP.SAR cofiles*.* data*.*.We have in windows directory structure c:transcofiles and c:transdata with transport files. From directory trans we start command file SAPCAR_PAK.bat which contain only command:

SAPCAR -cf ARCH_SAP.SAR cofiles*.* data*.*. From transaction SPAM(client 000) we upload from directory trans file ARCH_SAP.SAR.Thats all.
