A technique is described for maintaining consistent filename conventions between multiple hosts and workstations by providing a table of default parameters for various hosts and workstations and the corresponding filetypes that are accessed to determine the default parameters and filetypes for a given file. A display is also provided to display the name or names of files to be transferred and their destination. The programs which produce these screens also obtain and display default information concerning the files, such as, the file names and the data structures for the files on the destination host computer or workstation. The user can either accept the default information or change it.
