I want to know, if there is any way to generated PRN file on AS/400 from a spool file, using Host Print Transform. I am thinking of storing rendered print jobs(PRN files) on IFS and print them later.

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

We’ve had good success by converting spool files to PDFs and saving on the IFS. Its more versitile than a PRN file.

There are a number of low cost AS/400 utilities that can convert to PDF. Probably even some free ones. If you have IBM’s InfoPrint Services feature, it can convert to PDF.
