    Hi -

    I know you can go into the print manager and force a .prt file to be dumped to a .csv/.pdf file using the tools within print manager.  Does anyone know if there is a way, via a Unix script, where I can take the .prt file and transform it into a .csv or .pdf file?  I'm trying to write a process to backup all the files within specific print directories and save them to the network.  But I found out that the users typically go in and save the files into other formats, from within the print manager, and then they manually save THOSE formats out to the network.  I'm trying to automate this for them.  I hope I'm making sense with my question.  any thoughts?

     

    Thanks in advance!

    Laura

    We (used to) do this all the time: Now that we're on Windows, not as much, but I do have a sample:
    /cygdrive/d/lsfprod/gen/bin/bldxffiles -SP GHSNT_fsuser . CB185.prt Will take the CB185 file ran by fsuser and convert it to pdf.
    cd to the print directory
    ${GENDIR}/bin/bldxffiles -SP login . CB185.prt Will likely get it for regular Unix users.

    Or
    ${GENDIR}/bin/bldxffiles -SC login . CB185.prt Will convert to .csv

    Another option is to put a .cfg file together to always create the CSV. If the program is XX123, then you would have a file named XX123.cfg with the option to create the CSV file in addition to the PRT file. See KBA 1495307 on Inforxtreme for details.
