Create a PF on the IBM i - we call ours PAGESEG
Field Type Length Length Position Usage Heading
PAGESEG CHAR 8201 8201 1 Both
Coded Character Set Identifier . . . . . : 65535
(no idea why I made it that length)
Install the IBM AFP Print Driver on your PC
Load the logo/image into a Word document (or similar)
- we usually remove the margins
- size it as you would like to see it on the page
Print to file using the IBM AFP Driver with output type = Page Segment
File example: MyLogo.mbr
Then use FTP to upload it to the PAGESEG file
quote site namefmt 0
put c:\logos\Mylogo.mbr /qsys.lib/asthhobj.lib/pageseg.file/mylogo.mbr
On the IBM command line:
CRTPAGSEG PAGSEG(yourlib/mylogo) FILE(ASTHHOBJ/PAGESEG) MBR(*PAGSEG) TEXT('My New Logo')
Now the image is on the system.
In the DDS (which has to be *AFPDS) - add logo below last record format
A* COMPANY LOGOS (IN THE FORM OF LOGOCOM#)
A PAGSEG(&WRLOGO 0.25 0.25)
In the above example, the logo name (page segment name) is a variable called WRLOGO. You could easily just do:
A PAGSEG(MYLOGO 0.25 0.25)
The numbers after represent the "offset" over and down - the non-printable area of a laserjet printer.
BTW - this works with any image - even one that is the entire page.

Subject: How to print a logo in a Spool file
I have a logo on a PC.
Can someone walk me through the steps required to use
that logo in a .PRTF file with DDS?
I'm running v7r4 trying to print to an HP printer with HPT
