This includes:. The large number of formats and technologies can be complex to manage, and can make optimizing your output environment challenging. Infoprint Server is an operational prerequisite, but is not required to install the transform products. Transforming AFP to PDF lets you turn print output into electronic output for more timely delivery, streamlining the information flow within your organization as it helps reduce or eliminate costs associated with printing. For example, you may have employees in home offices or traveling, and sending printed output simply is not practical. PDF documents may be more useful than paper documents, by including bookmarks that let the user navigate easily and quickly through the content.

A filter is a program that modifies the input data before it is sent to the printer or email destination. When you associate the transform filter with these data formats, Infoprint Server automatically calls the AFP to PDF transform when it processes documents with these data formats.

Table 16 shows the filter name and filter options that you can specify in the Filter field of a printer definition. This option identifies the code page to which line data is converted before it is transformed.

Specify a code page that corresponds to the coded fonts that the transform uses to transform the line data. To transform line data that is already encoded in the code page that corresponds to the coded fonts, do not specify this option. When this option is not specified, line data is not converted from one code page to another before it is transformed.

You must specify this option to correctly transform documents that are encoded in code pages that do not correspond to the code page for the coded fonts. To determine the code page to specify, first determine the AFP code page for each character set. For AFP code pages, see ,. The AFP code page and the name of the code pages that iconv uses are different. When you specify this option, also make sure that the code page specified in the Document code page field of the printer definition identifies the code page in which input documents are encoded.

A job submitter can also specify a document code page for a specific print job in the document-codepage job attribute. When you specify this option, you might need to create a separate printer definition for use only by those applications that require the -i option and code page conversion.
