Can you show the DDS code - are you specifying font at the record format
level or the field level or both?

A R $PRT02A FONT(5707 (*POINTSIZE 11))
A XRQTITL 120 POSITION(3.20 0.55)

This was interesting -

Trying to remember the job log showing when font substitution occurs - if in
the QSPLJOB log or the user's job...

Subject: Changing font size on a field withing a print file is not working

Hi everyone
Before I forget - we are on V7r3
I need to make a change to what is printed within one particular print file
For whatever reason - I decided to take this very slowly I changed the names
of the 2 fields in the print file, making the applicable change in the
program that uses this print file I then changed the contents of these 2
fields - and tested these changes So far so good I then changed (or
attempted to change) the font size of these 2 fields by including FONT(222)
after each of the field in the print file I recompiled the print file I
recompiled the program that uses the print file But when I print the spool
file to an AFPDS printer - nothing has changed And I am drawing a blank as
to how to debug this Is there any way to see what font size is sued within
the spool file?
I chose FONT(222) for no reason, except that is sued elsewhere within the
print file and is printing smaller characters - so I am assuming FONT(222)
does in fact work
