How do you reassign important spoolfiles (1000) from one user to another?
Example: All spoolfiles owned by userA must now be owned by userB. The SndNetSplf is good for doing a few but not 1000.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

What are you tring to do by assigning the spoolfiles to a new user ?
If that is the case why not just run the job under the user profile where the final spoolfiles need to go?

If someone else needs these report,wouldn’t copying to a different OUTQ work?

The only reason I can see the user being an issue is a forms printing application like OPTIO is driven off the user for mapping purposes..

    SNDNETSPLF is AFAIK the only way to change the userprofile of the spoolfile. If you need to send a thousand of those you need a way to easily select those 1000 spoolfiles and my suggestion is to use Operations Navigator to select the thousand spools, right click, select send via SNA and enter the new user once. It will take some time but it won't require you to enter a 1 a thousand times before every spool you want to send.
