You can use client access and a PC application to create overlays without
having to purchase AFP.  First create an overlay using your favorite PC app,
print it to the AFP Driver supplied with client access (you will need to
change the properties to indicate you want to create a file of overlay
type). This will create  a file on the PC that you will need to copy to the
AS400 - I use a 1024 byte file created without DDS on the 400. Finally, the
CRTOVL command will let you to create a *OVL object from the file.
