On our system we have limitless text for our Items. We developed a rudimentary text editor many years ago which is also used for creating letters (for emails/faxes etc) but ideally we would like to buy a decent 'text editor' that is native to the iSeries. Does anyone know of such a utility/product that we could integrate into our applications?

It needs to run on green screen initially.

Failing that, we will have to commission someone to write one for us.

Many thanks,

Neil.

Sorry, I forgot to say; the application is written in RPG…….

IBM had the OfficeVision Product but it is no longer supported.
I did a Google search on Office Vision 400 and got the following link.

I do not know anything about the software or the company, but it may be a start for you.

    It needs to run on green screen initially. The key word seems to be "initially". Can you show us the object description of one of your documents? Tom

    Tom, The system will always have a green screen version because of the work environment the system is used. To expand a little : We use a text editor to aid entry for Item Description, Order Line Text, etc etc. The text files have a 70a field for the actual text, Text Line Number plus key fields depending on use (ie: ITEM, Order No, Line No. etc) So we are looking for a more sophistaicated Text Editor (word Processor) that will aid text entry on green screen and write to the DB2 files. Hope that clarifies my question. Neil.

    Sounds like a good candidate for variable length fields.
