See how you can enhance your current IBM i or AS/400 application
IBM no longer supports Advanced Function Printing Utilities. Read the official memo here.
Leverage the flexibility of a Windows-based forms design tool. Whether your original business document resides on the iSeries or in a network folder, design with ease using our WISIWYG tool that only requires a spool file (AFPDS or IPDS).
Continue producing AFPDS spools on the iSeries: Enhance or start from scratch using a fully supported Windows-based program
As IBM continues to develop new technologies, as well as operating system upgrades, the number of discontinued or unsupported programs increases. As an example, Version 7.3 does not support IBM Advanced Function Printing Utilities (5770-AF1).
