IBM AS/400 Printer Output in Operations Navigator
Posted on 2009-07-01
For the past three years I have been using the Operations Navigator inside of Client Access Express to access spool files on my AS/400 printers. I frequently drag and drop reports to my PC for further analysis via Excel. All of the sudden it I am having a major issue with this process. If there is more than one file in the printer queue only the first file shows up correctly in Operations Navigator. The other spool files show as gibrish. It is almost as though the colums have been shifted on the other records. I can see some identifiable data in these records such as user and printer names, but they show up under the wrong columns. I have tried to clear all spool files but this has not seemed to work. I am a novice when it comes to the AS/400 and would appreciate any help.
