This is what PCE can do for you:

GROUP1 tells you that:

DOC1 PCE runs after DOC1 Generate to manipulate AFP, Metacode and PostScript composed print streams, enabling users to:
  • Split a single datastream into multiple parts - including by number of pages per document and/or with page limits per output file
  • Merge multiple datastreams of the same type together
  • Resequence a datastream (mailsort) to maximize postal discounts
  • Create reports to indicate the type of processing that was performed, such as the number of accounts and files created, pages processed, and time and date information
  • Select specific parts of a datastream for printing or reprinting
  • Insert banner pages into a datastream to indicate a series of logical groupings such as operator instructions
  • Merge logical pages together to create a variety of imposition patterns
  • Add valuable information to a document (not available during processing) such as OMR marks, barcodes, page numbers and customized client requirement
  • Add document level and/or page level TLEs (Tag Logical Elements) to AFP print streams
  • ...and more

But there is more than this!
You can also use DOC1 PCE to run BEFORE DOC1 Generate in order to merge, resequence and/or manipulate DOC1 Generate inputfiles. We have also used DOC1 PCE to transform XML files into flat text files or process already formatted textfiles such as SCS records from mainframes. You can find samples in the Visual PCE community forum.
