IBM Access Client Solutions to Download a Spool File (Funktion WRKSPLF > PDF File) works correctly only with latin1 language
The i user has a SPLF in the OUTQ and wants to process it as a PDF file.
IBM ACS offers the possibility with the function WRKSPL > PDF this works error free if the used character set page belongs to the font family Latin 1 (1252 - Windows Western).
(The functions in the Operations Navigator for PDF creation are not an alternative here, this user interface is much too time consuming and complicated for a normal user).
In an international company like Dachser, there are currently branches in the following character set regions:
1250 - Windows Central Europe 1251 - Windows Cyrillic 1252 - Windows Western 1254 - Windows Turkish
Therefore we need in the ACS function WRKSPLF > PDF besides the PDF button a "Button for using Infoprint Server" which this function from the Operations Navigator converts the data correctly within the respective character set families.
The i user has a SPLF in OUTQ and wants to process it as a PDF file, even if the data is in Central Europe, Cyrillic or Turkish character sets are present. ( all non-latin1 character sets )
