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

CVTSPL2PDF is not an IBM command.
Someone in your company either wrote it, downloaded it, brought it from a previous employer, or purchased a package that has it.
You are going to have to find the source code to make any changes.

    If you simply drag/drop the original spooled file to your PC with iSeries Navigator, does it show as Arabic in the PC file? If you run the Qshell catsplf command against the original spooled file, does the resulting streamfile show appropriate Arabic characters? Tom
