If you work within an IBM AS400 (or System i or iSeries) environment, are you really making the most of your spool files?
By using a spool file converter, it’s possible to convert your AS400 spools to a wide variety of document formats, for a myriad of uses. You can convert spool to System i PDF, Excel, XML and several other useful file formats.
From leading global AS400 experts Ariadne Software, CoolSpools (http://www.coolspools.com/) is a flexible, powerful, easy-to-use spool file converter. Compatible with AS400, iSeries and System i, CoolSpools software makes converting your spool files a breeze – saving you time and money, and ensuring the accuracy and integrity of your data.
Here’s how you can use CoolSpools software to output to the right file format you need – and the impressive features you can take advantage of as you do it.
Create and manage AS400 PDFs
CoolSpools software does more than produce simple PDFs from your spool files. It can create multiple PDFs split by criteria you state (such as invoice number). Append your converted AS400 PDF to any existing PDF (even one that wasn’t created using CoolSpools software). Drop unwanted pages from your PDF. Add password protection and lock editing. Include images such as forms, logos or watermarks. Whatever you need from your PDF, CoolSpools provides the ideal AS400 solution to all your PDF creation needs.
AS400 Excel files tailored to suit you
Need to covert spool to Excel? CoolSpools has this covered too. As with PDFs, CoolSpools can split your converted AS400 Excel files into multiple documents, and it can append the converted Excel worksheet to existing documents – a feature no other System i software currently offers. Unwanted information can be excluded from your AS400 Excel document, and there are great formatting tools, too. Styles such as colors, fonts, shading and borders can be added, and conditional formatting can also be incorporated into your converted Excel file.
Convert spool file output to XML the easy way
CoolSpools spool file converter is also a powerful AS400 solution for XML creation. The software takes your iSeries spool file and converts to XML, which can then be imported into applications as you desire – saving time on reprogramming and re-entering data.
These are just a few of the powerful IBM System i, iSeries solutions and AS400 solutions offered by CoolSpools software. To find out more about CoolSpools spool file converter – and their AS400 solutions for managing spool files, databases and email – visit http://www.coolspools.com/.
