Once you have created and tested an excel workbook containing an L4X script it can be deployed for use in PDFing to convert OS/400 spooled-files to spreadsheets. This conversion does not require MS Excel to be installed.
You must first copy the "scripted" excel workbook to the \PDFing\Markup directory.
