Last updated on FEBRUARY 26, 2024

Applies to:

Oracle Documaker - Version 11.5 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


One of client demanding the AFP output file for Check form with specific Medium map for Tray 1 and Tray 2, suggested "MM000000" can be set to tray 1 and "MM000001" can be set to tray 2. X and Y should be 0,
Paper Size - should be set to the size of the physical medium desired, Letter or Legal.

Approach : We have updated the form definition text file/Created the form definition file (file starts with F1*.DAT) by keeping the "MM000000" and "MM000001" as new/customized entries and generated the (".FDF") file using the "AFPFMDEW" utility and done the AFP resource loading using that file using "AFPRESRC" utility.

Issue: The generated AFP having the Medium map as "PLUD", While checking the file, defined form definition file is picking however the the defined medium map values aren't updated in the generated AFP file.

Question - Is there a way to include a customized entry? We understood that the Page property and the first section/fap should have proper selection as paper size and tray entry, but looks like we should have a specific dropdown as well in Paper size to create a new set of combination. How can we achieve this?

Please guide/suggest.
