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.

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