I came in at the tail end of this and may not have read the initial email yet, but, there is a free utility in the July 2000 News/400 magazine that we downloaded and use that will convert spool files to PDF format as well as HTML and ASCII. It may be worth a look. Hope that helps.

It is also worth pointing out that the documentation is excellent and that you get the source-code in "C", this is well worth inspecting as an example of how to write readable cross-platform code. Although my product PDFingMailer http://www.pdfing.com uses the Windows version of PdfLib to create PDF documents from *SCS spooled-files, I also helped Thomas Merz, the author of PdfLib, to port his library to the AS400 and I can vouch for its functionality.
