PCO Support for iACS Merged

Need the text assist funktion for 5250 UI in iACS as provided in pcomm for iSeries Access for Windows to work with documents that was created with DTM for iSeries (3rd party product).

Use Case:

Because support for IBM i Access for Windows ends on 043019 and IBM recommend to use IBM i Access Client Solutions so all previous functions should be implemented in the new product.

    I think what you are looking for is,

    ACS EHLLAPI - Version 8.18.316

    Which can be downloaded here,

    The only other advice I would have is to plan on getting off the 5250 interface and onto the web. There is a lot more you can do, and it's well worth the effort.
