The OV/400 Transition Feature of DTM for iSeries takes care of upgrading existing OV/400 RFT/FFT documents to DTM documents, and it provides replacements for the OV/400 CL commands typically used to integrate Data/Text Merge functions into existing AS/400 applications.
Any existing OV/400 document can be upgraded in one of the following ways:
- A document can be upgraded on-the-fly the first time it is used by DTM for iSeries. This kind
of upgrade always happens whenever an OV/400 document is used through one of the
OV/400-like CL commands and there is not yet a DTM version of this document.
- A batch upgrade can be performed on all the documents in a specific folder by running the
Import RFT Document ( IMPRFTDOC ) or Import FFT Document ( IMPFFTDOC ) command.
Additionally, a number of OV/400-like CL commands are available to limit the number of changes required to integrate DTM for iSeries into existing OV/400 based applications. These OV/400-like CL commands include Print Document (PRTDOC), Merge Document (MRGDOC), Edit Document (EDTDOC) and so on. The parameters of these commands are similar to the parameters of the OV/400 CL commands.
Investment protection is guaranteed by continuing to use existing OV/400 documents without having to recreate them and applications using OV/400 commands without having to modify them.
- OS/400 V5R4 and up.
