subject: OVRPRTF to PDF
I am trying to use the OVRPRTF command to create a .pdf file that will be
directed to the IFS.
We are running V6R1M0. I entered the commands based upon IBM's
instructions found at:
The demo task was to print the library list, but to have the list created
as a .pdf file and directed to the IFS.
I set up PSATTLER as the IFS directory.
I entered the following commands.
OVRPRTF FILE(QPRTLIBL) DEVTYPE(*AFPDS) TOSTMF('/PSATTLER') WSCST(*PDF)
Instead of creating the .pdf file, I received the following message: File
QPRTLIBL in library QSYS member or device *N not opened.
I also tried OVRPRTF FILE(QPRTLIBL) DEVTYPE(*AFPDS) TOSTMF('/PSATTLER')
WSCST(*QSYS/QCTXPDF) OVRSCOPE(*JOB) with the same result.
I tried a similar OVRPRTF command with a working program and got a
message that stated that the printer file was not open.and
I've checked that the Portable Application Solutions Environment (PASE)
the IBM? Transform Services for i5/OS? licensed program (5761-TS1) areaddressed.
