I have a request to view spool files on screen as the report was formatted. Customer does not want to select HOLD(Y/N) on screen. And they do not want just the report detail viewed in Excel either. I am looking for either home designed software or commercial software to accomplish this task. Please include sources of information. Thanks.

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

How about using the ability of the iSeries to convert spool files to PDF format on an IFS folder?
The method is to create a “PDF” output queue with a PSFCFG object and spool files placed on this output queue will be processed directly to the IFS.

    I need to mention that the customer's iSeries is on V4R4M0. This may have an affect on the solution, but not sure.

    Our SpoolFlex product has several options for "viewing" spooled file reports. We have companies that have stopped printing almost all of their reports. SpoolFlex has a "Manage Spooled File Option" that is similar to IBM's WRKOUTQ or WRKSPLF but with a lot more functionality (includes blank lines and overprinting) Also allows emailing SpoolFlex can also quickly and easily convert reports to PDF and Excel automoatically without User intervention. With prices starting at less then $2,000 it is a no brainer for most companies. We offer a FREE 15 day trial.
