    Check some reasonably priced tools from BVS Tools and Gumbo. We have used both and are very happy with them. You can automate the conversion process with a short CL or RPG program which calls these tools.

    What OS version are you running? V6R1 brings product 5761TS1 'IBM Transform Services for i5/OS'. It needs to be installed, but is no-charge. It includes PDF generation. Tom

    Check out this article. It tells you everything you need to do. As Tom said, this requires 6.1 or later. {/A]

    Download and install a product called CutePDF onto your Windows machine.  Then use Client Access and define a printer and associate the printer with CutePDF.  Make sure that the printer margins are defined correctly and do a couple of wide print outs and test this.  Once installed every time you print a document to the attached output queue it will pop up on your screen wanting a file name for the PDF document.  Store this in a local folder on your computer.  The software allows you to search your PDF document.  For testing of your printouts change the spool file to SAVE(*YES) as you are transferring the printouts to the output queue.  Been using this for years.

    I found a way that works us.  

    Launch System I Navigator,  right click any report under printer output and select convert to PDF.   Select  Store as stream file, create a new printer (I use PDF in the name....example ITPDF, PRPDF, Etc)  Once created and proper permissions are set, any report that gets dropped into outq ITPDF or PRPDF will get converted and put in the IFS.    My users are mapped to their appropriate drives.........so far they love it.    I also have a script that will monitor the IFS folder(s) and will move the PDF documents out of the IFS and onto the SAN.      Probably better ways to do it but it's easier if the users don't have to go through a lot of steps  :)

    If you use Client Access for web, you can click on the spoolfile and download it directly as a .pdf to your computer. That was available on v5r4 and likely earlier.
