View a PDF document that resides on the iSeries
How can I view a PDF document that resides on the iSeries with in a RPG program, or even open a new window?
As far as I know, you cannot read or display a PDF document in an iSeries green-screen session. You can only view it from a graphics-capable machine such as a Mac or PC running Windows, Unix, MacOS or whatever other operating systems Adobe's Acrobat reader will run under.
There are a number of companies, advertising in iSeries magazines and on iSeries sites who offer products to convert iSeries data and spooled files to PDF documents, but I have not seen anything that can do the reverse.
