1-Use any program at all to create your overlay.  Any program at all. 
Create a printable document and get it just the way you want it.  Print it 
out and review it.  I would suggest a PC application like WordPerfect. Use 
tables, images, etc. 
2-find an IBMAFP printer driver for your PC that can be installed.  It 
would install similar to your PC FAX printer, i.e., it doesn't really 
print with ink. Install that driver on your machine and "print" your 
document to a file with the new printer.
3-move the file to someplace on your AS/400. Create the overlay there. 
Attach the overlay to your PRTF file.
4-test it
5-repeat till done.

There is an excellent article in Midrange Magazine, I think in May, 2000. 
Follow the example exactly to see what is happening.

I was considering doing something like this, but I can't find any way to
create overlays or page segments.

I don't own Client Access.

I don't run Microsoft Windows.

I don't mind doing programming/technical stuff to get this done.

How do I create overlays and/or page segments?!  I couldn't find any docs
in Softcopy...   Am I out of luck?
