Hi Fran,

If the iConvert software will stay after the Xerox
printer is returned, you could use it to create PDF
files from your AFP spool files. This is one of the
features offered by iConvert.

subject: Outsourcing spooled file

We are at the end of our lease on a printer we have
been using for five years. The spooled files go
through iConvert software then into the Xerox

We bought an HP5550 to handle normal daily work that
is in addition to our desktop printers.

We have asked our purchasing dept to get quotes for
outsourcing the large printing jobs - 30,000+ pages. 
We intend to send the spooled file to the vendor. One
vendor says it must be a PDF. That is not an option.
We are moving off the AS/400 in a couple of years so
this is just a temporary solution.

Two questions:
(1) Do you know of a vendor such as Kinkos or Moore
that handles print jobs from a spooled file?

(2) How would I get the spooled file prepared to send
to our server or via e-mail? 
Don't think a *SAVF would work. Cannot CPYSPLF -
advance function printing.

Thanks for your help.

Fran D.
