APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • A script where part of the Output Viewer is taken from an
    external file. In the Output Viewer, it looks okay and exporting
    to formats such as HTML works as well. The problem we have is
    when exporting to PDF, the output viewer item taken from the
    external file (in this case a .htm) is not present at all.
    
    Export to PDF should produce the same result as exporting to
    other formats, such as HTML.
    Since this is an item in the Output Viewer, it should be
    retained during the export process.
