Introduction

CHAPTER 1 EZeDOCS/400 eFORMS
ABOUT EZeDOCS/400 eFORMS The EZeDocs/400 eForms module is an iSeries 400 host-based application package used to design invoices, purchase orders, statements, packing slips, etc. These documents can be merged with database files stored on the iSeries 400 system or with spool files created by other applications. EZeDocs/400 eForms can manipulate spool file data to: • • • • • • move data around on the page change fonts rotate text remove text turn spool data into bar codes on the fly print conditional logos and signatures.

EZeDocs/400 eForms can also generate print jobs supported by the most popular fax products for the iSeries 400 market. Any fax product that supports a PCL data stream can support the print jobs created with EZeDocs/400 eForms.

After the form is downloaded. There are two types of commands that can be embedded into an office document. However.. It cannot be changed by you or the software. the attributes of the spool file generated from OfficeVision/400 prohibit EZeDocs/400 from running a regular merge to accomplish this. The form to be merged must first be downloaded using either the Download menu option or the DWNLODFRM API. embed the commands for the enable and disable overlay. These are the defaults for many printer interfaces. The commands used by the printer interface to start and stop hex transparent mode are required in order to use the HP-PCL commands explained below. HP-PCL commands can be embedded into the office document allowing the overlay of the form to take place automatically when the document is printed. This method of merging with a form is supported only on a twinax printer interface supported by the software. It will always be the same. Novel Token Ring. ENABLE OVERLAY To enable an overlay that has been previously downloaded to the printer. The syntax of the command must be correct for the printer to recognize it. The ID will be shown on the report. or IBM terminal emulation connections.Appendix C APPENDIX C MERGING WITH OFFICEVISION/400 DOCUMENTS A form can be easily merged with an OfficeVision/400 document. Each set of commands is described in the following sections. contact your system administrator or ACOM Solutions. the printer interprets the command instead of printing it on the page. run a printer status report for your output queue after the form has been downloaded. If you do not know what these are. This is a permanent ID assigned when the form was created. For a large document with many pages. The two sets of &% in the command represent the start and stop of hex transparent mode for your printer interface. use the command: &%1B&%&f#####y4X Key the command into the document as regular text at the beginning or end of the first page. It is not supported by PC Support/400. Certain characters must be in upper case and others must be in lower case. substitute the commands for your interface instead of the one's shown. To find out the ID for your form. For a short document. 6/20/05 C-1 . At print time. The ##### represents the 5 digit permanent overlay ID for the form that is to be merged with the document. If yours is different. use the commands for the call overlay. These MUST match the settings on your printer interface.

and Call Overlay commands can also be useful within high-level language applications on the iSeries 400. CALL OVERLAY The Call Overlay command turns on a form overlay for one page only and then disables itself. The rules explained in the Enable Overlay section for start and stop hex commands and the permanent form ID also apply here. The ID number will be displayed to the right of the form’s text description. substitute the proper command sequences. The syntax of the command must be correct for the printer to recognize it. The Call Overlay command only calls the form overlay one time. The ID number will also be printed on the Printer Status Report if the form is downloaded at the time you printed the report. The ##### represents the permanent form ID assigned to the form. C-2 6/20/05 . &%1B&%&f#####y5X The printer will recognize this command and execute it instead of printing it. the form overlay will be turned on and every page that prints will have the form overlay on top of it until a disable overlay command is issued or the printer is turned off. go to the Work with Forms screen. This ID was assigned when the form was created. DISABLE OVERLAY To disable the form overlay. Disable. You must use the command on every page of the document requiring an overlay.Merging with Office Vision/400 Documents Once this command goes through to the printer. Using the enable and disable commands always causes a blank page to come out of the printer after the job is complete. To find the ID assigned to the form. If you do not want to call the merge commands. key the following command into the document as regular text on the page after the last page of the document. Certain characters must be in upper case and others must be in lower case. If &% is not used for your printer interface. you can use these commands to do the merge for you. There is no way to prevent this except to use the call overlay command (below) or to use a printer that suppresses blank pages. The Enable. To call an overlay use the command: %&1B&%&f#####y3X The two sets of &% in the command represent the start and stop commands for the hex transparent mode for your printer interface. These MUST match the settings on your printer interface.
