Cut and paste iSeries green-screen text into an Outlook e-mail in a lined-up, neat and more readable fashion.
On any iSeries green screen, click on the iSeries Access (Client Access) Copy to Clipboard icon to copy the entire screen text, or draw a box around selected portion you want to copy and then click on the icon.
Start your e-mail in Outlook, and paste the text into the desired position.
Highlight the text you just pasted and click Format, then Font.
Select Courier New font and click OK.
Your pasted text is now lined up neatly in a much more readable fashion.
Note: You can copy the entire screen image, color and all into Outlook with ALT/PrintScreen. However, I have found some users are not able to view the image in the e-mail. Plus, text-only is often more readable, especially if you fix the font.
