Although its not directly a Python question, I know you guys are probably
nice enough to answer it anyway ;)
At work we run ftp to get files off an AS400 into a text file. These then
get imported into Excel to mess around with.
I would like to be able to use Python's ftplib to get the file and then use
COM to import straight into Excel.
The problem is then when I use ftplib I get the data back in a certain
format, I've also used the dos ftp command and I get the data the same way.
We use a thing called Rumba FileTransfer which is obviously translating
somehow, anyone know how I can do the same?

0 -2 0 -2
0184 3 132 0 0 0
0185 3 11852 0 -64 0
I realise that it's fix delimited, but then I get stuck on the K and M which
crop up with negative numbers.
