    Is this a one-time conversion? Or a normal part of the invoicing process? Why is your file AFPDS -- what special features are you using? Can you alter the invoicing program? Phil

    It definitely depends on why it was *AFPDS to begin with. If that was selected just because it seemed a good choice at the time and it wasn't needed for any reason, then just run the CRTPRTF command again, except change this parameter:
    CRTPRTF FILE( myfile )
            DEVTYPE( *AFPDS )
    ...to be:
    CRTPRTF FILE( myfile )
            DEVTYPE( *SCS )
    If it works, you're done. If it doesn't work, it's possible that it can't be reasonably done -- it uses AFPDS facilities that aren't supported by SCS printers. Tom
