Today we generate spool files on the AS400 (iSeries)using Central Pro Output Server on the AS400. The user now wants to create the spool files as PDF's and then email them as attachments with a password to open them. Can this be done ?
I don't know if there is anything specific about the AS400 version of Central Pro that would prevent you from doing that. The Windows version comes with a task "JFPVMRG" that demonstrates how to create a PDF. Of course, the forms have to include the PDF "Presentation Target" before this will work. There is also a "JFEMSEND" task/agent for firing up the "messaging agent" that would do the emailing. I have no idea if you can require a password before opening an attachment.
