Is there a way to view PDF's from the AS/400 or green screen? We already have PDF's converted, but need a way to say..press an F-key in an inquiry program and have it "spawn" a window containing the matching pdf for the data. Thanks in advance!

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

Hi,

If you’re using Client Access, you should be able to use the PC Organiser to open a window with your PDF. Assuming your .PDF is on a drive J: (mapped to your IFS or shared folder) you could do something like this :-

STRPCCMD PCCMD(‘J:\Yourfile.pdf’)

That should use the default .PDF viewer to open the file.

Regards,

Martin Gilbert.

    Thanks for the reponse..I tried to do just that...but in a DOS window, I got the following error message: "C:\test.pdf is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file." Any ideas as to what I am doing wrong?

    just figured it out...my file was named "test.pdf" instead of just "test". Once I renamed it..it worked ike a charm. Thanks again!
