The HOLDDATA file is a text file, so when FTPing the HOLDDATA file from CA Support Online to the pc, the ftp should done in ASCII. The ASCII command has to be issued before the get command. (If this is not done, the default format is binary.) Once transferred in ASCII, the file should be formatted correctly on the pc and, when FTP'd it to the mainframe, the dataset should also be formatted correctly. Below is an example FTPing from CA Support Online to pc:
