We use RPGILE and need to get an image that is on a server and print it on a document for our shop floor. How do I go about doing that?

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

Like with most things, there is probably more than one way to do this.

You can issue the Start PC Organizer command (STRPCO no parameters) followed by a Start PC Command (STRPCCMD ). The STRPCCMD has one parameter – which you can use to start a PC application. Assuming you can view the image with a browser, you could generate the PC command to launch the browser with a URL value – and that URL would be the path to the image. Printing the image then becomes a Windows thing.
Printing an image on a document sounds like you might want to look into something to “overlay” the image – and you might also need to have an IPDS defined printer – but I’m only guessing on that..
