I am getting error while sending the PDF file to outlook via JCL.
Below steps I am doing.

(1) I have INFOPAC report downloaded to PS file of VB 200
(2) Converted VB file to FB 200 file.
(3) Used TXT2PDF routine to generate PDF file. This file is VB4100 by default.
(4) Ran the IEBGENER SMTP JCL to send attachment as PDF.

I am getting the attachment as .pdf in the email but Adobe is unable to open the file.
Code:

HELO xxxxx                                             
MAIL FROM: <xxxx@abc.com>                     
RCPT TO: <yyyy@abc.com>           
DATA                                                     
FROM:xxxx@abc,com                             
TO:  yyyy@abc.com                 
CC:  yyyy@abc.com                 
SUBJECT:  TEST RUN                                       
MIME-VERSION: 1.0                                       
CONTENT-TYPE: MULTIPART/MIXED;                           
CONTENT-DISPOSITION: ATTACHMENT; FILENAME="XYZ.PDF"

Why no code tags?
If you simply manually ftp the pdf dataset can your pdf reader read it?

Hi,
Yes. If I do file binary transfer (option 6 in ISPf) and name the file .PDF, it is opening correctly with adobe.

Please suggest me how to use code tags in the xmitip.

I was talking about using code tags in your post - I have added them myself but I will not do it again.
