Yes, you can rename files in Data Exchange before you send a file out.
Select process "output MARC records..."
Highlight file to be output
Select proper method (e.g., Put FTS)
Connect to the appropriate host
Highlight the file to be transferred on the "Local" side
At the bottom left of the window is a check-box "Rename files upon
transfer" (or use alt-n). This appears under the "Transfer type"
selection box. It isn't active until you have connect to the remote host
and have a file selected. When you select the "Put" button between the
Local & Remote frames, a window will pop up that allows you to enter the
new name. Put in the new name and hit the 'ok' button.
If you don't see the check-box, try resizing your Millennium window.
It's not always very smart about sizing things to show all the necessary
boxes, options, etc., especially if you use a fairly large font as your
There is a document on transferring files to OCLC for batch holdings
update on the IUG Clearinghouse site which has pictures that might make
this easier to follow. While transferring to Marcive is of course
different in many respects, the part about renaming files would be the
same. Hope this helps. --ann

Does anyone know if it is possible to rename a .out file in Data
Exchange, to be FTP'd from III to another system.
Marcive requires files to have a .bib extension, without the .out.
