ComposePDF

A step that is based on this step template uses Quadient Inspire (formerly GMC Inspire) to generate a new PDF file from a WFD file and one or more raw data files. The step waits for the new file to be returned.

Job property defaults

  • Data files: ${getFileName(overrides, text, read)}
  • Data modules:
  • Fixed data files:
  • Fixed data modules:
  • GMC job file:
  • External command: PNetTC ${Job.GMC.WFDFileLocation} ${Job.GMC.SetupDataFiles} -o MyOutput1 -e PDF -f ${getFileName(print, pdf, write)}
  • External program language: Not set
  • External program code page: UTF8
  • Valid return codes: 0,2
  • WFD file: ${getFileName(print, unknown, read)}

Usage notes

  • If you want to send a PDF file with a WFD file to Quadient Inspire to be reformatted, change WFD file to ${getFileName(origoverrides, text, read)}.
  • If Quadient Inspire is not listed in the PATH environment variable for the system (aiw1 is the default Ricoh ProcessDirector system user in AIX and Linux), replace PNetTC in the External command property with the full path to the program.
  • The Job.GMC.SetupDataFiles property used in the external command does not appear in the user interface because you cannot enter a value for it. Ricoh ProcessDirector concatenates the values of the Data files, Data modules, Fixed data files, and Fixed data modules properties in the correct order and stores them as the Job.GMC.SetupDataFiles property. You can use this property in commands and symbol formulas that require more than one of those values.
  • If you list a value for the GMC JOB file, you must also add this text to the value of the External Command property: -c ${Job.GMC.JobFile}
