Host Print Transform is the config piece that enables overlay, graphics, barcoding, etc. We used HP laserjets configured as 4019 with HPT and the HPPJL drivers. HPT can be a real pig sometimes, so make sure you assign enough storage to QSPL subsystem.

If you don't have an IPDS chip, you -can- print overlays if you use AFP printing. You need to define the printer as AFP capable (I don't remember the exact settings). AFP uses the AS/400 to create the bit map that is sent to the printer. This does work with remote printers, but a lot more slowly-- the AS/400 ships the entire page bitmap for each page you print. That's when you need the IPDS card-- the bitmap for the overlay is shipped once, then reused with each page of variable data you print. --Paul E Musselman PaulMmn@ix.netcom.nospam.com >Okay, I am clueless here.
