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
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
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!!
