Perform a File Transfer

Use the Pack feature to simplify file transfer; for example, to send exported files to another location. The Pack feature combines all of the files associated with an export into a single file that can be sent in email or transferred to an ftp site. Then, use the Unpack feature to separate the files after they have been packed.

Note: All pack files contain non‑ASCII characters, so use binary mode when transferring them using ftp.
