 +=== How do I move the macros and soft fonts to the AS/400? ===
 +A. There are two most commonly used methods of transferring PC files to the AS/400. For users of client-access,​ the following steps need to be taken:
 +
 +· Position the mouse pointer over the My Computer icon and right click the mouse. ​
 +
 +· From the right click menu, select Map Network Drive. ​
 +
 +· Once at the Map Network Drive window, select the drive that you wish to assign to the shared folder in the Drive prompt. ​
 +
 +· From the same Map Network Drive window, at the Path prompt enter the path name of the FORMFMG folder in the following format. Next select the OK button \\systemname\QDLS\FORMFMG ​
 +
 +· At this point a mapped drive to the AS/400 should be established. You should be able to simply drag and drop your forms from your current directory to your shared folder on the AS/400 from windows explorer. Non client-access users need to use FTP to transfer their forms to the AS/400. The procedures to do so are outlined below. ​
 +
 +· Log into the AS/400 as QSECOFR and issue the following command to ensure that the FTP server is currently running: ​
 +
 +STRTCPSVR *FTP 
 +
 +· From the PC choose the start button from the task bar and select run. 
 +
 +· When the run form appears, type : 
 +Command ​
 +
 +· Press the enter key. 
 +
 +· From the DOS prompt, change to the directory containing the forms and soft fonts. ​
 +
 +· Follow the ftp underlined script below to send the files from the PC to the 400: 
 +
 +<​html><​pre>​
 +C:​\>​ftp ​
 +ftp> open system name 
 +user: qsecofr ​
 +password: password ​
 +ftp> type binary ​
 +ftp> put c:​\myform.mac /​qdls/​formfmg/​myform.mac ​
 +ftp> quit
 +</​pre></​html>​
 +
 +
 +=== I would like to include a command in the startup IPL sequence to submit the engine. How do I do this? Moreover what program do I call to end the engine? ===
 +To include a command in the startup IPL sequence program the following command in the QSTRUP command language program: ​
 +
 +SBMJOB CMD(CALL PGM(FMG/​FMC0460) PARM(ENGINE1)) IINLLIBL(QTEMP QGPL FMG) LOG(0 99 NOLIST) LOGCLPGM(*NO) JOBMSGQFL(*WRAP)
