I currently use Client Access Ooperations Navigator to download a report to my PC by dragging the output file onto my PC desktop. This correctly produces a report that I can print from my PC but it does not put in the page breaks that existed on the iSeries. Is there a way to keep the same page breaks from the iSeries in the PC downloaded report? I would like to do this without purchasing new software.

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

The file you get with that method is a plain text file. Most reports are designed for Lanscape, change to landscape and increase the font to produce the desired page break. Courier 11 in Notepad works for standard OS/400 printouts.

    A "page break" results from a printer control character embedded in the printer data stream. Are you printing on the same printer hardware that the printer file device specifies? Once you drag/drop it to Windows, it's all converted to ASCII. Parts of a printer data stream such as control characters wouldn't make much sense since there's no way to know what printer codes to convert to. If you want to print it, create a printer session and just route the spooled file to it. Tom
