Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

There is nothing in iSeries Navigator of itself to produce a PDF. Infoprint Server (5722IP1) would enable it. There are also several third-party solutions which can produce PDFs. I’m not certain if any of them have iSeries Navigator plug-ins.

A partial list of the third-party providers which produce PDFs from OS/400 spoolfiles:

o Help systems
o Linoma Software
o BCD (Business Computer Design)
o Help400 (http://www.help400.de/Eng/Freeware.htm)
o Electronic Commerce Solutions (www.ecs-europe.com)
o . . .

The list can go on and on. Try ‘iSeries spoolfile PDF’ on your favorite search engine.

There have also been several articles on how to produce PDFs yourself. Check out Search400, www.iSeriesNetwork.com, or www.mcpressonline.com
