    TechTip: TechTip: Spooled Files and PDF, Part Three

    Giuseppe, Hello! Sorry, You can ignore my question, I didnít read Your article to the end. Problem solved with copying correct .TTF file. Now I have all Croatian letters and everything works perfect! SCSiText is the best (free) tool that I know, and believe me, I was tested a lot of such free tools!!! Really great! Thank You! Dalibor

      TechTip: TechTip: Spooled Files and PDF, Part Three

      Hello again, Giuseppe. Now I really have problem. For some reason some of my spoolfiles SCS2ITEXT canít convert to PDF. On IFS I receive PDF file with 0 KB, and, of course, when I copy it on PC and try to open it, I receive error. Error message and messages from JDEBUG(*YES) are in attachment, can You please help me, Giuseppe?

        One more thing: some of attributes of spool files that can't convert: Page size: Length . . . . : 72 Width . . . . . . . . . . : 220 Measurement method . . . : *ROWCOL Lines per inch . . . . . : 6 Characters per inch . . . : 16.7 Overflow line number . . : 60 Fold records . . . . . . : *NO does something from that attributes causing creation empty PDF?

          The maximum lng for the utility in the article is 198. You can easily increase to 220 or more. Did you recreate the PF with field size increased to 220 ?

            Thanks Beppe! It works!! After recreating PF with field size of 220, PDF file was created correctly. (Sorry for late reply, I was too busy with work and study). SCS2ITEXT is really great tool! Thanks a million! Dalibor

                Guiseppe, I get the same error, but only when this is run as part of a web application. When I run this interactively, it's fine. Any suggestions?

                    Instead of using the SCS2ITEXT command, I've written an RPG program that reads through a list of spool files to be converted to PDF and then calls SCS2ITEXTC. I can copy in the exact code if needed, but basically it's.. Read PDFPARM file to retrieve Logopath, logoscale, logoposition, pagesize, pdfpath, etc. for the set of spool files being converted Generate a unique PDF name Read PDFLIST to retrieve the spool file name, user, job, number, spoolnumber etc. of the first spool file to be converted Generate a unique PDF name Call to SCS2ITEXTC to create the PDF Loop through PDFLIST and repeat the call to SCS2ITEXTC until EOF. The first call to SCS2ITEXTC works perfectly. Every call after that results in a PDF with a size of 0. When I try to open any of these, I get an error from ADOBE. When I run using debug = *YES I do get an exception which is attached.[file name=6b3a4d50_javanullpointererror.doc size=24]http://www.mcpressonline.com/images/fbfiles/files/6b3a4d50_javanullpointererror.doc[/file]
