Is there any utilities/tools that can help me to create a program on AS/400 (CL program) to transfer the reports that are created at a certain output queue on AS/400, transfer them automatically to a specific folder at PC side so as to be opened with any application at MS Windows, keeping the Layout(View) of the report as its original view?

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

Not sure if this will do exactly what you want;

I’ve successfully used Giovani Perotti’s freeware MMAIL utilities with command CVTSPLSTMF to convert spool files to PDF files, you could then transfer these over to the PC via QNTC? There is also a IBM product you have to pay for “Infoprint” mentioned on the MMAIL site which may do what you are after.

    Since "proper formatting" for a printed report is only meaningful to a printer, you must mean that you want to send spooled files to a printer attached to a Windows PC and have it print properly. Fonts, lines per inch, characters per inch, page segments -- all of these are related to printers. The answer above suggests generation of a .PDF, which makes sense if you want samples that show what a printed copy would look like. That's part of the reason that .PDFs were invented. But other than that, unless you use a utility that displays a spooled file using the same rendering as the target printer would, there's no way to be sure. The viewer in iSeries Navigator can come close for most reports. Otherwise, it's not a very meaningful request. Tom
