Issue/Introduction

The CA PTF download process puts all downloaded PTFs in a single zip file. Inside of the zip file each PTF has it's own file.

The goal is to have several PTFs in 1 file. It is simpler to do a receive on SMPE using 1 file. Less JCL changes and less files to upload to the mainframe.

 



I downloaded several PTFs. They downloaded to a zip file. I would like to convert this to a flat file. I would like to concatenate all the PTFs to 1 file.
