Client Access 5250 has two ways of doing a print screen -
the icon in upper left is a "windows" print key and does not generate a spooled file on the system,
it is strictly a client function. The selections under "File" let you control that.
the HostPrn on the Popup Keypad ("Actions") generates a spooled file which could be converted.

Had experience from system i navigator (7.1), expand basic operations then printer outputs, right click on a spool file then you have option to convert to PDF.

But for this you need to add a printer which supports pdf conversions or always you can use a java/RPG based program.

Any way of getting a pdf file instead of printing?
