TLAForms allows you to use data from existing IBM i spool files to create professional forms with no programming. Create fields from IBM i spool file data. Place data on a form as text, bar codes or images. Use SQL to retrieve data from your IBM i files. Use actions to condition objects on the form to easily create a header page, detail page(s) and last page. Or use actions to condition output. For instance, email the form when an email is available. If an email is not available, print the form. The Form Design Interface makes designing forms easy and no programming is required to generate forms.
