The FOCVTSPL API converts a spooled file into an image that can be posted on a Web site, e-
mailed, archived, etc. Spooled files can be standard *SCS printer files, *AFPDS spooled files or
*USERASCII spooled files with HP-PCL code.
The spooled files can be converted into TIFF images or PDF documents and placed in a data
base file, (the To file). The data base file can be transferred to a PC as a PDF file which can then
be archived, viewed, etc.
A security code is required for the ACOM Solutions (Keyes) PDF module. Select option 17,

The font size used when converting an *SCS printer file to a PDF image is determined by the
page size values in the spooled file attributes. The font must fit all possible characters on the
PDF page with a margin.
*AFPDS Printer Files
When converting an *AFPDS printer file to a PDF image, the rotation value in the spooled file
attributes is used to rotate the PDF page.
