I am am also trying to use the download tool to FTP file down from mainframe. However, type=a directive seems to be ignored. File gets FTPed down encoded in EBCIDIC, with all line feeds stripped out. I can then read the file back in using an Input Data tool with Code Page set to "IBM EBCIDIC - U.S./Canada". That solves the encoding problem ( content is *kind of* readable) , however, everything is on one line.
