If it prints find and AFPDS to PDF is off, then it's most likely the Host
Print Transform API. I've seen it 100 times.

A lot of times it is fixed by using *WSCSTLETTER for the manufacturer type
and model vs *WSCST.

Printing was never a problem. Just the built-in PDF creation.

Thanks guys

subject: Re: AFPDS PDF scaling?

Here is Justin's original post -
I have an *AFPDS printer file that's compiled with PAGESIZE(11 8.5
Unfortunately, the printer file uses the full page so when it's
to PDF there's clipping around the edge. The PDF files are printed
programmatically, so it's not a simple matter of specifying "Fit" in

Is there a way when generating the PDF to scale it down?
It seems there is more to this than meets the eye at first glance. I'm
curious what happens when the report is printed to an actual printer. Is
Host Print Transform involved? Or another transformation method?

I suggest he contact IBM support for help - they're paid to take the
time to ask the right questions.
