The client wants to be able to print an AFP report, stored in a View database, to a dataset, to look like a regular report.
The only means to extract from a View database is by using SARBCH.
The results using SARBCH is that the output contains AFP Pagedefs, Formdefs, etc., in addition to the text.
If the eventual output is to contain mostly text, SARBCH cannot be used.
For an AFP report, SARBCH /PRINT or LOAD will show resources in addition to the text.
In CA OM Web Viewer, there is an AFP-to-PDF transform that can take place, for display purposes.
When presented the PDF, it can be saved as a PDF, or as a .txt file.
