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. _______________________ Booth Martin Booth@MartinVT.com http://www.MartinVT.com _______________________ Scott Klement <email@example.com> Sent by: firstname.lastname@example.org 01/20/2001 12:17 AM Please respond to MIDRANGE-L To: MIDRANGE-L@midrange.com cc: Subject: Re: Overlays and page segments 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? On Fri, 19 Jan 2001, Denis Robitaille wrote: > In fact, you can create overlay and page segment with any PC based > package.
