RE: Native PDF Creation - System Assigned File Name



fixed

Agreed for the most part.

Just something I was curious about. If there was functionality for this
(like retrieving the identity column value on an SQL insert), I can see a
benefit to that.

Why wouldn't you just specify the file name ?

Specifying a generic path only seems to be not the right way to do it.

subject: Native PDF Creation - System Assigned File Name



Does anyone know of a way to retrieve the file name that the system assigns
when you create a PDF via OVRPRTF and only specify a path - not a full name?

It uses the spool file name and a unique 6-character add-on - ex.
QSYSPRTa1b2c3.PDF

There is no message to retrieve. I may have to generate my own unique names
but just wondering if we can let the OS (V6R1) do it and then retrieve it.

Thanks.
