Hi etibbitts1,

Use this command (WRKWTR) & check whether u have this WRITER (PDFMAIL) in your AS/400.
once it is there; take opt-2 on the spool-file & take F10(for addl. attributes) & change the following:-

  • 1) Printer . . . . . . . . . . . . PDFMAIL
  • 2) Save file . . . . . . . . . . . *YES
  • 3) User Defined Data . . . . . . . ‘mailtag(xxxxx@yyyyy.com)’ – this would be your mail-id

& hit enter; it would send an PDF-attachment to your INBOX;
save it to wherever you want.

Thanks
Svanky

    Right clicking the spooled output should give the option of “Convert to PDF”   There are requirements for "right clicking". First, it can only be done through iSeries Navigator (iNav) or through some other PC-based programming. And for iNav, it needs to be at V5R1 or higher and have the AFP Manager plug-in installed. And if it's before i 7.1, it requires a license for Infoprint Services.   Now, at i 7.1, existing spooled files can be converted to .PDFs without an Infoprint Services paid (or evaluation) license. An 'existing' spooled file would have to be available before "right clicking" could be done. Otherwise the conversion must be done at the time of creation, and even that requires i 6.1 with Transformation Services if Infoprint Services isn't licensed.   It can be confusing.   Tom
