Ok, it looks like I need to go deeper into the problem at hand and the solution I am looking to do. Our insurance application is all green screen. We have just started doing commercial insurance for New York. There is a program with our CPP package that will generate a quote. Currently brokers will call us up, ask for a quote, we will do it, print it out and fax it back to them. The COO wants to make this a paperless transmission. So, out of a brainstorm session, I decided the best solution was to have the quote program spit out the quote print to a unique outqueue. I would have a VB program that theperson can open to view that specific outqueue, select the job he wants, save it to his desktop and then he can email it off to the broker. Emailing from the AS/400 is not an option. I would prefer to write my own client side application as opposed to using Ops Nav, due to the fact that it is not a toy everyone should be playing with.
