Hi all,
We are in the process of creating a two page fax using overlays. The
first page is a letter and the second page is a form.  We have tried
using Front and Back overlays on the print file but without specifying
duplex the back does not print.  We were hoping it would print as the
second page.

I was wondering if anyone has a quick and simple method to do this? Any

Dear Fred,
About a year ago, I was trying to figure out a way to print an overlay on one 
page of a multi-page OfficeVision document. IBM told me that if I changed the 
record format of a particular page in the document and then applied the overlay 
to that page using the DDS Overlay keyword, the overlay would only be printed

If you can use DDS keywords with the printer file servicing your Fax/400 
application, you might be able to use different record formats for the letter 
and the form and use this overlay capability to print the two different 
overlays on the two pages. 
To me, this AS/400 feature works the same as starting a new section in PC word 
processing software like Microsoft Word. The changes you make (in this case 
applying an overlay) are maintained for only a portion of the document and are 
not carried through to the complete document.
