Output Management Web Viewer Spool View


Large AFP reports show up as text files rather than pdf files.  Is there a limit?


  • Output Management Web Viewer 12.1
  • Spool™
  • View®
  • DRAS


There is a default limit of 9,999 pages and 50,000 lines. The page limit and line limit are there for you to configure to if you need to do this for performance reasons.


The default limit of 9,999 pages and 50,000 lines can be configured.  Here are the instructions on how to configure the Spool™ Java Transformer Environment Variables.

  • The supplied CBY3OPTN member CAHAX2YP in CAI.CBY3OPTN contains the configuration Environment Variable parameters required by the Spool™ Java Transformer Interface.
  • Edit the CAHAX2YP parameter member as required by your setup.
