Microsoft Word works fine.

It must be defined as length of 10, data type A characterand usage P program-to-system. The display will have the following records: Personal tools Create account Log in. Design the overlay using a PC application. REC3 prints two overlays.

By using the code examples, you agree to the terms of the Code ovrrlay and disclaimer information. This includes a Constant backside overlay that doesn’t require backside programming.

A record already on the display is deleted even if fields specified in the record format are not selected for display. The overlay prints 1. If the value specified for a parameter is outside the valid range, it is flagged when the spooled file is created. Valid values are 0 to Most of the time the overlay fails to create because there is no data in the file bad ftp or the wrong driver was used.

Also create it without a member. I would set up at least theand DPI printers. Valid values are 0, 90, and Directions to FTP are: A program-to-system field for rotation must be defined as length 3 with 0 decimal positions, data type S and usage P.

Keyword entries for printer files positions 45 through This keyword has no parameters. When you specify the position-down or position-across as program-to-system fields, the fields must be defined as length 5 with 3 decimal positions, data type S, and usage P.

All records on the display with fields that partially or completely overlap fields in this record are deleted before this record is displayed; all others remain on the display and are not changed in any way. Use the optional library-name parameter to further qualify the overlay. The format of the keyword is: The following example illustrates the location of the overlay using the previous DDS code.

If an application uses private resources for example, fonts, page segments, overlays, or GDF files not distributed with the systembe aware of the following information. If you save the AFP output file to c: If the overlay fails to create, see Step 1.
