When I try to type the same string into the PCCMD parameter of the STRPCCMD command, I get an error that the command does not like the space between the "program" and "files".
STRPCCMD works if I just pass the "M:Blueprintssample.pdf", my PC opens the file with Adobe, and I can view the blueprint. But what I am really trying to do is to print the blueprint, so I was hoping to call Adobe Acrobat with the "/p" switch, which would get me one step closer to printing the blueprint.I hope either you can tell me how to pass a file name with embedded spaces to the STRPCCMD, or perhaps you have a better way to print a PDF file from the iSeries.
1. crtprtf mylib/myprtf *usrascii
2. ftp loopback
put mypdf myprtf
This creates a new spool file with the PDF file in it.
