It is recommended that one preallocates a LRECL of FB 80 for PTFs and HOLDDATA.
For one client, the following steps worked for processing a PTF and HOLDDATA:
1. Click on the file (do not right click or save target as...)
2. Opens the text file on the internet browser
3. Using the browser's File menu, save as..., and save the file on the desktop
4. FTP to mainframe, and the file is good to be used on SMP/E
