I may have to consider using IBM AFP utilities.
How can I tell if that is installed on the system??

That doesn't sound "too complex" to me.

I've done similar overlays starting with a old 9402-400 ( 50 CPW or
something?) Printing to both an IBM Infoprint 40 *IPDS printer and an
HP Laserjet (via HPT).

One issue you may have is getting the shading exactly where you wanted
it. When I tried to do this with MS Word and/or Excel I simply
couldn't get the positioning exact enough. I was trying to shade
every other line for a spool file that was to be printed at 8 lpi.

I ended up using IBM AFP utilities, a green screen application that
lets you design overlays. With that, I could exactly position the
shading.

This was 10+ years and two jobs ago, but the overlays are still in use.

I cannot remember exactly how long I've left the spool file in a PND
state,
but I'm sure its been for quite a few hours.
If this is in fact the problem, then the overlay is definitely out of the
question.
As for your question of the overlay being overly complex ---- I used
excel
to create a grid in landscape format, with every other row being shaded.
What I may do is to create a simple overlay (of maybe a couple of rows in
a
grid format) and see what happens there.

Unfortunately, the same result occurred , the status is PND


PND just means the writer is "thinking". This can indicate HPT is
active, or overlays are being merged, etc. Perhaps the overlay is
overly complex? Does it NEVER print or are you just impatient?
