Before You Install

  1. Confirm that the IBM i is version V6R1 or above.
  2. Run WRKLIB RJSEXPORT to confirm that you do not already have a copy of the RJSEXPORT library on your iSeries. If it returns no results, continue to step 3. If it does return results, RJSEXPORT has been installed on your iSeries in the past; ask your iSeries administrator whether to upgrade or clear the library and reinstall.
  3. Make sure that:
    1. FTP is running on the iSeries LPAR where you are installing RJSEXPORT.
    2. Your account has the required system credentials.
      Note: If your account does not have the required system credentials, use QSECOFR or another account with *ALLOBJ special authority.
  4. On the FTP server, make sure that NAMEFMT is set to 1, not 0.
    Note: NAMEFMT is set to 1 on most FTP servers.
  5. If you are using FTP exit programs, create an exception or temporarily disable them during this installation.
  6. Make sure that your RJSEXPORT license matches the iSeries serial, model, and LPAR numbers. If you do not have a license or do not know if your license matches, view our licensing help or contact HelpSystems Technical Support.
  7. On a Windows system on the same network as the iSeries, download the RJSEXPORT version 1.43 installer.
  8. Run CRTSAVF FILE(QGPL/RJSEXPORT) to create a temporary file on the iSeries to upload RJSEXPORT.LIB to.


  1. Log in to the iSeries LPAR you are installing RJSEXPORT on:
    1. Bring up a command line:
      1. On older versions of Windows, click Start > Run, type cmd, and click OK.
      2. On newer versions of Windows, click Start, type cmd, and press Enter.
        A Windows Console window opens.
    2. Type ftp, where is the IP address of the iSeries LPAR you are installing RJSEXPORT on.
    3. Type the user name and password of the account you chose in Before You Install 3.2.
      Note: If you cannot log in, most likely either your account has a security restriction on the iSeries or you are using FTP exit programs. In both cases, contact your iSeries administrator to rectify.
  2. Run the following commands:


    quote site namefmt 1

  3. Use the quit command to exit FTP and close the Windows Console window.
    Note: You can now delete RJSEXPORT.LIB from C:\.
  4. Restore RJSEXPORT from the uploaded file to its own library:
    1. Log in to the iSeries.
    2. On a command line, run the following command:
