I have a border box (line) printing in a production job. On letter size paper (portrait), the border line is 1/2" from the edge.
Now I have to move the box a hair up. Unfortunately, the overlay is already defined in STRAFPU as starting on row 0. And it cant go negative.
Printer is HP with IPDS card. Printer file is created as devtype(*AFPDS).
The only thing I have found that works is to do an OVRPRTF FRONTMGN(*DEVD), which tells the iseries to print at the very top of the page, as far north as the printer can print.
This works perfectly for the BORDER lines, which moves up to the very top of the printable area of the page.
Unfortunately, the TEXT that prints within the border MOVES also (which it probably should).
The border AND the text move to the top left of the page, as far as the north as the printer can print.
Now I have to move the border AND text down 1/4 inch.
I can move the border overlay down easily with the OVRPRTF FRONTOVL(OVL123 .25 0).
But, I CANT move the text down in small increments!! I can move down a whole line by printing an extra line, but this is NOT fine enough control to make the document look acceptable.
Now that I have given up the OVRPRTF FRONTMGN fine increment control by the keyword OVRPRTF FRONTMGN(*DEVD), I cant figure out how to have fine control of data placement.
Any ideas how to move the data down in small increments like .12" ?
Thanks in advance!!
