I've done a little work with AFP before but have a project to modernize some dunning letters.  Changing font, adding company logo for letterhead, etc.  

We have a template (PF) with substitution variables (~CUSTNAME, etc) and an RPG program does the scan/replace to build the print data (PRTDATA).

Everything works fine and it is a vast improvement over the Courier 10 layout.

I just know that when I show the changes to the users, someone is going to ask "Can you bold the <amount, date, whatever> in that sentence?"

The print file DDS looks like this:
** HELVETICA                                                      
A          R PRTLINE                                              
A            PRTDATA       70A       15SPACEA(1)                  
A                                      FONT(2304 (*POINTSIZE 12)) 

I've perused the printing redbook and  some other resources and I don't see that capability.  Is this doable?
