How do I pass on user information to the printer from the AS/400? That is, if I wanted to embed user and job information on the IPDS job and send it to the printer, how would I go about it?

    If you want "user and job information" as part of the printed report, you might be able to use CHGJOB PRTTXT() in the job. The PRTTXT() attribute is a 30-byte string that is attached to spooled pages from the job. It usually prints at the bottom of each page in the bottom margin area. It's easy to test. If you are asking about something like a "cover page", you should be able to set up 'separator pages' either for each spooled file (one page for each report in each job) or for each job (one page for each job that sends reports to the printer). If you want it inside of reports, you need to redesign the reports and the programs that create them, or possibly use elements such as overlays which would also take some re-engineering of your reporting. Can you narrow down what you need to accomplish? Tom
