This depends on the nature of the PDF file.  A PDF document is structurally very
different from a spooled file.  Every piece of text is "positioned" on the
screen with X and Y coordinates.  Add to that the problems of different sizes
and proportions of fonts, it's very difficult to take a PDF file and turn it
into a simple fixed-font text document (which is what you would need to display
on a regular 24x80 AS/400 screen).  I've created a utility that will convert an
AS/400 spooled file to PDF, but going in the other direction is much harder.

Like I said, I have a utility which will convert spooled files to PDF.  However,
combining that information with existing PDF data might be difficult.

Sorry, I'm no help with this question.
