I have been trying to create a *PAGSEG or *OVL object with no success from an image file. I am opening the file in Windows and "printing" it to a file via one of the above mentioned drivers.

I drag/drop that file to the IFS (Explorer -> Navigator) and FTP it as a binary to a PF. When I attempt to create the PAGESEG I receive an error message and the object is not created.

The message I receive is:

Additional Message Information
Message ID . . . . . . : CPD88C0 Severity . . . . . . . : 30
Message type . . . . . : Diagnostic

Message . . . . : File AFP in MLLIB not valid for creating a *PAGSEG.
Cause . . . . . : The file or member cannot be used to create a printer resource. *N means that the incoming data was an internal system space. No source file or library is specified. The reason code is 02. The reason codes and their meanings are:
1 - A length field contained in the incoming data for the printer resource is not correct.

2 - The structured field identifier in the incoming data for the printer resource is not correct or is not supported. The error was detected while processing record 1, byte number 47. The structured field which is not correct may be caused by a length that is not correct on the previous structure field. The structured field which was being processed at the time is '5A002ED3A8A5'X.

3 - The file or member specified contains no data.

4 - The incoming data for the printer resource is not correct. The resource must contain an END structured field that is appropriate for the type of resource being created. The END structured field identifier expected for this resource is ''X.

Recovery . . . : Verify that the names of the file, library, and member are specified correctly on the command. If the data originated on another system, also make sure that the record length of the physical file is correct.

I have tried several AFP drivers including a couple of generic ones and a few Inforprint ones, including the IBM Infoprint 20. I set the port to :FILE and the output type to page segment (or overlay, with the same results). I tried with both compressions on and off. Also several resolution sizes.

Any ideas??
