Does the user require *SPLCTL for the OVRPRTF to work?

I have several users using the exact same function and the overide works for some but not others. Do they need *SPLCTL authority as that is the only difference I have noticed.

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

In general, there should be little if any relationship between *SPLCTL and OVRPRTF. At the time OVRPRTF is initially executed, there is no spooled file to exert *SPLCTL over. Once the spooled file is created, *SPLCTL may come into effect.

*SPLCTL is intended to give control over spooled files that are owned by others. Please describe the override that is not taking effect. There may be a relationship that involves authorities for an *OUTQ for example. What are the problem users actually unable to accomplish?

    They do not need *SPLCTL, but they do need authority to the object being over ridden to. Let's say you are using the over ride to change from one outq to another. The user needs authority to the outq you are changing to. The easiest way to make sure that there are no problems with authority is to use adopted authority. Compile the program using a profile that has authority to the outq and specify *OWNER for the usrprf option.
