Dear Buck and Paul,

The transform buffer message is coming from the AS/400 operating system telling 
you that the amount of system memory assigned to the QSPL subsystem is too 
small to allow for conversion of the *AFPDS file to an HP PCL equivalence.

If you check the knowledge base on the http://www.as400service.ibm.com web site 
in the Print category for host print transform, you should find a couple of 
documents that include suggestions regarding amounts of memory to apply to QSPL 
to solve problems of this nature.

Did you get anywhere with this?  I suspect that the 16megs of printer memory is 
too small.  Also, are you using device support or remote writer?
