Spool file
How do you print the spool file in Times New Roman. Report is not PRTF. (Coded internal). I am modifing this program and been asked if we can do it. On the OVRPRTF, the Font Identifier is asking for a Character Value for the Times New Roman. Does anyone know what this Character Value is? The Point Size requested is 12.

Software/Hardware used:
Hardware - IBM i5 Software - RPGLE - CLLE

    Do an OVRPRTF to set the Font jsut before you call your program that will produce the output.

    I'm 99% sure you won't like it. Times Roman is a proportional font. Spaces take less horizontal distance then characters in a font of that type. But RPG print spec's locate by number of characters from the left margin. Your columns of data will not be aligned. But the printing will be very nice.

    Every report uses an external printer file. Commonly QSYSPRT or QPRINT is used. You can use OVRPRTF if necessary. . You really should not use an IBM-supplied printer file, just as you wouldn't use an IBM-supplied DSPF or PF for your own applications. It would be better if you copied one of those and used the copy instead. You could also make multiple copies with different names and use CHGPRTF to give each copy different attributes so that OVRPRTF wouldn't be needed. . However, best would be not to use internal printer specs at all. How often do you code internal display file specs? Why would you use external display files and not use external printer files? The benefits of external printer files are more than those for display files. . Tom
