PDF/Report Distribution


Active Member
Does anyone know how to automate the distribution of scheduled reports from the print que into a customized/structured directory? Are there any software packages that can distribute PDFs based on the PDF's title/content/user access-priveledges etc..? Any ideas or suggestions? Much thanks in advance.....

We are using formscape to distribute the reports to our outside plants. We
will be having to do this based off of environment, user, report name, &
version. We will need to add an ESU into XE to set the criteria but once we
have the criteria we can set default printers.

I would imagine it wouldn't be too hard to write a program to read through the F986110 and move reports around based on the information in this file. I started working on a project to do this exact same thing. I created a new file that contains the names and versions of reports I want to move. Each night, I'll read through this new file and move only these reports. I'm not sure where your printqueue is located, but ours is on our AS/400 and I will be moving the reports to a new location.
