Converting line data to MO:DCA-P in sample AFP files
If the sample AFP file contains line data, you must convert the data stream to Mixed Object Document Content Architecture for Presentation (MO:DCA-P) format.
If the sample AFP file is on a z/OS system, you must then send the AFP file and any AFP resources that are not inline to the preparation system.
To convert line data to MO:DCA-P data in a sample AFP file:
- Use the AFP Conversion and Indexing Facility (ACIF) program to convert the data stream to MO:DCA-P format. As an option, request that ACIF create a resource group file that contains the AFP resources that the file references.
- If the sample AFP file is on another system, use the File Transfer Program (
ftp) on the preparation system to get the AFP file and the ACIF resource group file. Use the
- Concatenate the resource group file and the AFP file that ACIF created.
