Place the file name you are selecting to transfer out, on the right hand side where it says HOST and then on the BOTTOM LEFT put it in either My Documents or DESKTOP.

Depending on the type of file you will either use ASCII, BINARY, IMAGE under the TRANSFER TYPE in the center of your screen.

ASCII – common examples of types of files are .txt, .dat, .seq, .csv, and .tab

BINARY – common examples are.exe, xls, zip and .doc (in some case could be .pdf)

IMAGE - .common example is .pdf

You are now ready to transfer the file to your desktop, a folder, CD, or USB. Your screen should look similar to this:

In the center of the screen click on the LEFT ARROW (from HOST to LOCAL) and you will see the file transfer.

Click on the “X” to close the screen. The file now can be found in the folder or where ever you selected to place it.

PLEASE NOTE: IF you are trying to import/export from your main district account – known as your “F” account – you MUST enter OECN$DTA: in front of the file name you are attempting to import/export.

This is entered under HOST. So it would read something similar to: OECN$DTA:ACHTAP.SEQ
