These instructions show you how to override PDF attributes, such as page orientation, font size, and line spacing, when splitting and emailing reports.
 
Prerequisites:
 
To override PDF attributes:
 
  1. Change the following data area in iSeries Report Splitter:

    CHGDTAARA DTAARA(RJSSPLIT/QUSRSPLA *ALL) VALUE(1600) 

  2. Change the following data area in Email Report Server/400:

    CHGDTAARA DTAARA(RJSERS/QUSRSPLA *ALL) VALUE(1600) 

  3. In iSeries Report Splitter, go to the  21. Edit Report Distribution Settings page for the spool files you want to override PDF attributes for.
  4. Override the PDF attributes using the three User Def Opt fields at the bottom of the page:
    1. In the first User Def Opt field, type:
      • *PORTRAIT for portrait orientation.
      • *LANDSCAPE for landscape orientation.
    2. In the second User Def Opt field, type the number of the font size from 1-20.
    3. In the third User Def Opt field, type the number of the line spacing. RJS Software suggests the following values:
      • For 80 columns and portrait orientation, use 8.              
      • For 132 columns and landscape orientation, use 7.                  
      • For 198 columns and landscape orientation, use 6.
  5. Press Enter to save the settings.

    When spool files are split with this distribution page, the options you chose will override the PDF attributes.
