Problem:

When you convert documents using the AFP-to-TIFF or AFP-to-PDF converters, the AFP overlays do not line up correctly in the TIFFs or PDFs. However, the overlays and documents print correctly from the iSeries to an HP printer when you use the *HP4 (HP Laserjet 4 compatible) host print transform settings.
 

Solution:

You need to set up your iSeries Report Converters to use *HP4 compatible workstation customization.
 
Prerequisite: iSeries Report Converters library (RJSCONVERT) version 1.34 or above.
 
Run the following commands to change this setting:
  • For AFP-to-PDF Report Converter:

    CHGCMDDFT CMD(RJSCONVERT/CPYAFPPDF) NEWDFT('WSCSTNAME(RJSTIFFHP4)')

    CHGCMDDFT CMD(RJSCONVERT/CPYAFPPDF) NEWDFT('WSCSTLIB(RJSCONVERT)')

  • For AFP-to-TIFF Report Converter:

    CHGCMDDFT CMD(RJSCONVERT/CPYAFPTIF) NEWDFT('WSCSTNAME(RJSTIFFHP4)')

    CHGCMDDFT CMD(RJSCONVERT/CPYAFPTIF)  NEWDFT('WSCSTLIB(RJSCONVERT)')
