Hi Al Nardi,
The current DBMS/copy version 8 still supports version 5 transport formats.
So you should be able to transform them directly into version 9 datasets.
I only hope you have the files correctly transferred (to Windows format)
in terms of character set and end-of-line conversion.
Stat/transfer possibly also may still support that versions format.
Their website is not very specific about that.
Regards - Jim.
