Munduuu -
Without to much thought to the reason for the question, I would think duplicating the spool file would be the easiest.

Enjoy,

    I agree with MurrayInfoSys. I can't think of any reasonable way to detach only a single spooled file (nor any limited subset) nor of any way to manage such spooled files. Technically, it contradicts the purpose of SPLFACN(*DETACH). Tom

    I can't think of anything useful to do with a detached spooled file that can't be done to one that is attached. Can you describe the business problem that you need to solve? Detaching a spooled file is a technical problem. Perhaps if we knew the business problem we could suggest alternatives. Tom
