PCX JPG BMP TIFF WMF Multi-color images in BMP or GIF format may be printed to a PCL5c compatible printer. These images must be converted to PCX format and you must own the EZDesigner/400 GUI Design Tool to perform this conversion and to upload images from a PC to the iSeries 400.

Yes, if you own the EZDesigner Pro GUI Design software and you’re using a supported image/signature file format you can upload your own PC images/signatures to use with your ACOM iSeries documents.

Can I map my document using spool files or data files?
The eForms module supports mapping with SCS spool files or native iSeries data files. The Checks module supports mapping with SCS spool files. Additionally, in both the eForms and Checks modules, information stored in a data file can be accessed by utilizing the DTEXT or Database Text command even though your document is linked to a spool file. This command allows you to return fields from your data file by referencing fields that you’ve mapped in your spool file. The eLabels module supports data file field mapping only.
