I am stuck. I have successfully converted a 400 spooled file to .pdf using Gumbo spool-a-matic and can see it in the IFS. I set up a file share for it but cannot not map a drive to it because my network ID and 400 ID are not the same. I am running Windows 98 (like most users here) and I have read in the archives that I just will not be able to map drive to the IFS using Windows 98 if my network and AS/400 user ID's differ. Any suggestions?

I use the IFS (and why would you need OPS NAV?) My users use a browser (IE 5.x) and Adobe Acrobat Reader to view in .pdf . Have also tested other formats, but pdf was most consistent in keeping spool file layout. . note: have users fix Adobe options so that always opens in a new window. Adobe versions & Microsoft IE versions not in synch and many halts if default option to display pdf in same window as browser). Other big problem was downloading new Adobe with old Adobe on pc-uninstall old version first. If not IFS, set up a share, or ftp the files. Have generated thousands of afp & scs reports with no errors. Have a cleanup routine to clean the ifs directory of old files. Have not used the V5R1 options - do you have to purchase Print Server for afp to pdf? jim franz ----- Original Message ----- From: "Burns, Bryan" <burnsbm@Echoincorporated.com> To: <email@example.com> Sent: Thursday, November 29, 2001 3:21 PM Subject: GUMBO questions > We are taking a look at GUMBO spool -a matic software due to the strong > endorsement from some users on this list. > > I have the following questions: > > Can files be put somewhere other than the IFS?
