In a batch process where 1000s of reports are going to printer from AS/400 system. Is there a way to set the printing priority. Print Priority by report/user etc.

Hi,

You could use OVRPRTF or CHGPRTF to set the OUTPTY of certain reports.

    If you want all reports for a given user or group of users to have priority on your printer, you can a little code to your startup program to execute a CHGJOB command and set OUTPTY (output priority) to a lower number. This change would effect all reports. We handle this by CHAINing to a control file by user ID to see if the user has a special print priority. You could also chain by the user's group ID if a record is not found for the user ID.
