Would like to ask help on how to convert an AFP document to a PDF file.
I'm aware there is a utility using IEBGENER which converts a PDF and automatically attach the PDF to an e-mail. Our requirement however is that the converted PDF will need to be passed/transferred to another storage server(filenet) instead of sending it thru email. We plan to use the NDM or FTP to send out the converted file to the destination server.
Any help will be highly appreciated. Thanks!

It takes custom software to convert proprietary data formats. . .

IEBGENER is a utility - it is not used by "another utility". IEBGENER may be used to send an e-mail, but this is not some special function - it is a simple copy of a sequential file. There are multiple examples in the forum. Suggest you use the forum search and specify iebgener smtp as the keywords.
Assuming the "other storage server" is running an ftp daemon, you can send from the mainframe to this server using ftp. If ndm is available, that too can be used to send the file.
The biggest challange i see is getting the data into the desired final output.
