They MAY be in the right format already, just have the
wrong attributes. Try DIR/FULL to understand what the
atributes look like. You can change them using a command
like $SET FILE/ATTR=(LRL=30000,RFM=STMLF).
CHeck $HELP SET FILE/ATTR
and $HELP EXHANNGE/NET
To really figure out what's going on you may need to DUMP
the first few block of the file and check the VMS guide to
file as to what a file should more or less look like inside.
