    An object type of *OUTQ cannot be allocated. Can you give us more information as to what you are trying to accomplish? Then we can suggest a solution. Some possibilities would be: Changing authority on the *OUTQ Having it in a library where you could allocate the *LIB.

    And be aware that you cannot restrict a user who has *SPLCTL special authority from accessing any spooled files on the *OUTQ no matter how you authorize the *OUTQ. Special authorities are intended to override any normal authorities. That's what makes them "special". Tom

    If you intend a users work to be redirected to a specific outq for a session, or part of a session, then you must look into the way the job(s) are configured.  There are many layers potentially involved between signon and a program placing data into an outq, so start with the user profile, then look into job descriptions, then look at the JCL controlling the particular job,  check each possibility for an override being inserted or configured, and especially consider how this will be maintained when (other) users need other things.  

    An initial program on the user profile to set up overrides could be a start point.
