Infoprint

Hey Guys and Girls

and again I am facing a problem
I receive multiple PDF's , and I need them to get merged into one big PDF to convert the PDF to AFP
the converting to AFP is not the problem , the problem is how can I handle those multiple PDF's
The pdf files are sent to the Pool , is there a possibility to grab those data and save to a file.


Thanks in advance for the help

Hello,

The pdf files are sent to the Pool
What is "the Pool"?

I receive multiple PDF's
How are they received?

the problem is how can I handle those multiple PDF's
Define "handle". What are the attributes of these files once they are received (recfm, lrecl, anything else you think would help us help you. . .)?
Hope this helps,
d.sch.

Hello

ok so no the pool the spool ( an S can make the whole difference ) so they are sent to the Infoprint Spool,

the question is is there a possibility to get the data from the spool to file , like a print to file in Windows,

I just tried to wrote a JCL to handle those PDF :-) this seems to work ( not perfekt but still keep trying)

Hello,

Yup, an ess might make a difference :)

Yes, you can copy things from the JES spool to a dataset (i'm not familiar with Infoprint Spool).

How are these files received? If possible, i'd recomend having them arrive as datasets rather than spooled data.
Hope this helps,

Hehe that's right , a lot easier to get them as data set but they don't want to , sending them throught ftp would make a big difference,
hehe , so it's another located building , and they only want to push print :-) yeah

hehe so thx for you r quick response

and if somebody know how printing from the spool to a dataset let me know :-)

Hello,

Check out the following. . .

Lionel B. Dyck has a great little tool, SDFSEXT, a generalized SDSF batch tool to extract all or part of your sysout into a dataset - look here http://www.lbdsoftware.com/

If you want to do some testing and are ok with doing it manually, try using XDC from within your tso/sdsf session.
Hope this helps,

Nope, i don't understand. What are you calling a "virtual Printer"? What is "print to file system"?

Might these be unix terms?

If you have jcl that "prints" to the spool, you can re-direct that output to a dataset by simply changing from SYSOUT= to DSN= and adding the other required parameters.

I'm not sure that this is what you are asking though. . .
Hope this helps,
