Ron-- The way it works: You create your overlay / segment as a graphic on a PC. Yes, it's required. The AS/400 just doesn't do well creating graphics. [Well, there -was- that bit-by-bit scheme that you could use 'way back when, but it's like using a nail set and a tack hammer to carve a life-sized statue.] Once you have your graphic created, you use a special print driver from IBM and print to a file, which is uploaded to the AS/400 (shared folder / NT-style share / IFS / etc). You then CPYFRMPCD ]or stream file] , then use CRTOVL to create an object of type *OVL. Once you have the object type *OVL created, you never have to refer to the PC again (until you change the graphic). --Paul E Musselman PaulMmn@ix.netcom.nospam.com >HI All, > >I am working with some AFP printing and trying to insert images into the >spool file.
