I created an overlay using Inforprint 300dpi AFP driver and then attached it to a printer file using the DDS keyword OVERLAY. Now after I called the program the spool file was generated , I used AFP work bench Viewer on 'iSeries Access for Windows' to view the spool file and it showed everything perfect. Then I changed the outq of the spool file to actually print on the ASCII printer (HP4250). This is where the problem started. it is just printing the text on the spool file and is not printing the overlay. We are using this printer from a long time and I even tested my other old program on the same printer which is still printing good along with the overlay. What am I missing? I compared the printer file compilation parameters and both are the same. Please help.
