Product: Can InterForm400 alter the input spooled files and add information from a database?

Answer:

 

Yes. There are three ways to do that:

1. Via a split definition.

 

  • a. This can execute an SQL SELECT WHERE statement to include database information in the spooled file contents and attributes.
  • b. The split definition can also call a user program to insert additional information returned from this program.

 

2. Via the Create Page Builder Spooled File command (APF3812/CRTPBSPLF). This command can call a user program and e.g. let the program completely change the contents, and even do a database lookup.

3. Via a Reformat finishing definition. The reformat finishing definition can change the page breaks of input spooled files to include less or more detail lines on each page – relevant if you e.g. want to convert from a landscape layout to portrait or vice versa. The reformat finishing definition can also call a user program to do database lookups to include more information.
