Thanks. I'll take a look Monday. I may have typo'd that in the email or it may be a "Homer Simpson DOH! Moment".

I'm predicating this whole thing on the assumption that Adobe is smart enough to recognize a URL syntax.

I have a SCS spoolfile with some boilerplate info.  I've been asked to add a hyperlink to some external boilerplate. 

We convert the spoolfile to PDF - CPYSPLF ... TOFILE(*TOSTMF) ... WSCST(*PDF) - and email it.

The PDF conversion doesn't make it a clickable link - prefixing with https:\\ didn't help.

Any thoughts?  Other than reinventing the wheel to use some open source utility?  It's only needed for a few months as that division is moving to a MS Cloud ERP so no $$ to be spent.
