What is a spool file converter?
Simple! A spool file converter (http://www.ariadnesoftware.co.uk/blog/spooled-file/) is a piece of software that takes your spooled System i files and coverts them from a hard-to-understand data extract into an easy-to-read document, in the format of your choice.

What formats can CoolSpools export to?
With CoolSpools software (http://www.ariadnesoftware.co.uk/blog/spooled-file/), you can perform System i file conversion to a number of popular formats. Want to convert spool to Excel?

CoolSpools (http://www.ariadnesoftware.co.uk/blog/spooled-file/)’ reliable software makes it all so simple.

How much control do I have over the converted files?
