GUEST,Bob Tech: PDF to AFP Conversion (27) RE: Tech: PDF to AFP Conversion 29 Apr 10

Hi Tony

Here is how we do it.

This is the no cost solution.

It uses the free IBM Windows AFP print drivers and FTP.

I am assuming that you have you are in a z/OS shop and you
are printing with PSF/JES.

= = = = = = = = = = =

Method: Windows print to a file
Vendor: IBM

1)        Configure the windows printer to print to a windows file. An IBM AFP print driver is selected which converts the document to an AFP data stream.   

2)        File transfer to the output from step 1 to z/OS. Key parameters are Binary, recfm=vb,lrecl=32756

3)        Use the PSF Rexx AFRREBLK to reblock to records that PSF will recognize. This is documented in the PSF V4R1 users guide chapter 9.Use IEBGENER to copy into the z/OS spool.

I'll try to check back in a few days to see if you have any questions.
