Creating enhanced PDF documents from spool files—including images, barcodes, added text, checkmarks, and encryption—is a simple process with the iPDF open-source package.

iPDF is a free, open-source toolset developed by Orati Systems Ltd. for the creation of PDF documents from *SCS spool files using iText 2.1.7, an open-source Java library (developed by Bruno Lowagie, Paulo Soares, and others) that allows you to create and manipulate PDF documents.

TechTip: Using Color in Printer Files on a Budget PDF Print E-mail
Tips & Techniques - Document Management

Learn the color printing capabilities that are available "out of the box" on IBM i.

Written by Michael Sansoterra

SNA Character Stream (SCS) printer files produce output that is as exciting as watching grass grow. Advanced Function Presentation (AFP) printer files are better, thanks to features provided by the BARCODE, BOX, COLOR, FONT, and other keywords. But did you know that AFP printer files also allow color elements to be printed on an HP-compatible color laser printer or included automatically in a PDF? This article will address the features the average shop can already utilize without buying anything special.

TechTip: Making Nice PDF Print Booklets for Free PDF Print E-mail
Tips & Techniques - Document Management

Learn how to set up iSeries Access to create PDF print-screen booklets.

jan_jorgensenWritten by Jan Jorgensen

In December, Sam Lennon wrote a useful TechTip about iSeries Access. It made me remember a problem I had to solve for a customer who wanted to do some printing but did not want to spend a lot of money having me create a program.

 

The customer wanted to have some "print screens" of a subfile list from iSeries Access. He wanted multiple copies, and he wanted to export them to some kind of office package. The solution needed to be easy for the user, and it needed to be inexpensive (downright cheap actually), but besides that, he had no real demands.

TechTip: Have You Considered IBM Lotus Symphony Office Suite? PDF Print E-mail
Tips & Techniques - Document Management
Written by Max Hetrick   
Friday, 08 October 2010 00:00

IBM's free Lotus Symphony office suite makes a case for a nice, lightweight office program to replace, or use in conjunction with, OpenOffice and Microsoft Office.

max_hetrickWritten by Max Hetrick

IBM has been around the document-processing field for a very long time. Almost everyone has heard of, or even used at one time, the IBM Lotus SmartSuite or Lotus Notes programs. Lotus was acquired by IBM in the mid to late 1990s and has grown into a pretty common business office platform.

Partner TechTip: You Want a Greener Approach to System i Reports and Printed Output PDF Print E-mail
Tips & Techniques - Document Management

Reduce your company's impact on the environment with ESEND report distribution.

floyd_delmuroWritten by Floyd Del Muro

Paper, paper everywhere! Managing the paper generated by the System i has always been a challenge. Typically, that task falls on the person responsible for manually collating and distributing report segments and other printed output. Over time, companies have tried different ways to route printed output—from creating a broader set of output queues to using processes that automatically fax reports. Some of these approaches still exist and even have their place in certain situations. Unfortunately, these types of solutions don't address the demands placed on IT departments today.
