Working with sample AFP files

You can use RICOH Visual Workbench to enhance a sample AFP file.

The sample AFP file should be representative of production AFP files that users submit to RICOH ProcessDirector for processing. RICOH ProcessDirector can then make the same enhancements to production AFP files when it prepares them for processing.

To enhance AFP files, first you open a sample AFP file in RICOH Visual Workbench and make enhancements to it. RICOH Visual Workbench adds information about the enhancements to a control file. Then, you add a step that names the control file to the workflows for production AFP files that are similar to the sample AFP file. RICOH ProcessDirector uses the information in the control file to enhance the production AFP files in the same way you enhanced the sample AFP file.
