If there's a Linux box on the network, you can use that to convert 
postscript documents to .pdf's. I've set up an intranet archive for a 
number of our weekly & monthly reports (plain *SCS) this way, using the 
API behind my WRKUSROUTQ utility to get formatted text files, then Linux 
tools to convert to .pdf's - a cheap solution; free :) 

Having said that, we are currently looking at CoolSpools400[1], which can 
tackle AFP ==> .pdf on the 400 in one go. It also splits reports into 
seperate documents at user specified points, with an exit pgm for user 
action at that point (which is what we're after, to save tedious manual 
splitting & distribution of above said reports).
