How to create an output file that is FB (fixed-length blocked)

I can create an output file in MS SSIS that when it gets placed on the mainframe, it is record format FB (fixed-length blocked). When I perform the same output action in Aperture, the file is a VB (variable-length blocked) file.

Any suggestions? Thanks

    Hi James, can you provide more information on the issue that this is causing so that someone can maybe think or a solution, thanks

    Hi Josh, I have a workaround now with the initial FTP, but didn't have to do that with the file created in SSIS. It might have been an issue with setting the code-page. I think we can close this / consider answered. Thanks though.
