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

Hi,

You can change the default OUTQ for a particular user by using CHGUSRPRF Command.
<pre>CHGUSRPRF USERNAM</pre>
Take F10(Additional Parameters) and You will find an option for having OUTQ.
<pre> Change User Profile (CHGUSRPRF)

Type choices, press Enter.

Group profile . . . . . . . . . GRPPRF > DEVGRP
Owner . . . . . . . . . . . . . OWNER > *USRPRF
Group authority . . . . . . . . GRPAUT > *NONE
Group authority type . . . . . . GRPAUTTYP *PRIVATE
Supplemental groups . . . . . . SUPGRPPRF *NONE
+ for more values
Accounting code . . . . . . . . ACGCDE > ‘ ‘
Document password . . . . . . . DOCPWD > *SAME
Message queue . . . . . . . . . MSGQ > PRADEEPP
Library . . . . . . . . . . . > QUSRSYS
Delivery . . . . . . . . . . . . DLVRY > *BREAK
Severity code filter . . . . . . SEV > 00
Print device . . . . . . . . . . PRTDEV > *WRKSTN
Output queue . . . . . . . . . . OUTQ > *WRKSTN
Library . . . . . . . . . . . </pre>

By default, it will be *WRKSTN, There you can mention the specific OUTQ.

Pradeep.

    Thanks and Wish U the Same RajaShekhar. I think, There is no other option. Because, At the time of generation of spool file, System will check the user profile for sending the Spool file to corresponding OUTQ. What is your exact requirement? Will you not be able to do this using CHGUSRPRF? Pradeep.

    Is your goal to allow the user to only see what spool files have been created under his or her profile? If so, WRKSPLF may be the answer to your problem.

    I guess this would be an alternative of sorts but I doubt if it's any easier to implement. Each user has a unique library in their library list. Each of these libraries has an outq of the same name. The outq in their user profiles is defined as that Outq in *LIBL . Phil

    The OUTQ() attribute of a user profile is specific to each profile. If you want groups of users to use common *OUTQs, then you can have that group use a common *JOBD. The *JOBD for a group of users can route spooled output for the group to a common *OUTQ. You can create a *JOBD that is only used for a single user, so only that one user's output goes to the *OUTQ in the *JOBD. If you want a setting for separate users, why would you need any option other than the user profile? That's the purpose of a *USRPRF object -- to set individual attributes. Tom

    WRKSPLF will allow you to see the Spool files created by corresponding user. If you would like to change the OUTQ of each spool file, You can change it there. But, For having the Spool files in a specified OUTQ for each user, You should be changing User profile(Or JOBD of corresponding user profile). Pradeep.

    I understood your Requirement Raja, I am a bit confused on, Why you are not willing to do the same by modifying User Profile(or Corresponding JOBD)? Is there any restriction in your requirement not to change the User Profile? Pradeep.

    When it comes to, WRKSPLF, it is mainly used to work with Spool files of a Corresponding user. After taking WRKSPLF Command you will get the list of Spool files. For manually changing the OUTQ, You can take Option '2'(Change + F4) and F10(Additional Parameters), There you will find an option to enter OUTQ. Remember, By using this, we should be moving spool files one by one. As suggested already, The best way to do is changing the User Profile(or corresponding JOBD). Pradeep.

    Oh.. What was the problem you are facing when you are trying to do it using CHGUSRPRF. Can you able to see the OUTQ name(which you have added) when you are trying to see the user profile(DSPUSRPRF).? Pradeep.

    If changing the default output queue on the user profile isn't having an effect, do the following: 1) Check the job description for the user profile 2) Check the job description the job(s) is running under 3) Check the print file(s) definition 4) Check the jobs for specific overrides One or more of the above elements is superseding the default output queue on the user profile.

    From a Work Management class I took in 1993. The hierarchy is (top to bottom). OVRPRTF Printer device file OUTQ (*JOB) DEV (*JOB) Job Description OUTQ (*USRPRF) PRTDEV (*USRPRF) User Profile OUTQ (*WRKSTN) PRTDEV (*WRKSTN) Device Description PRTDEV (*SYSVAL) OUTQ (*DEV) System Value QPRTDEV (PRT01) So user profile come into play in the middle of the list.

    i want to make a individual person all splf must be under my new out queue One difficult part of that is the use of the word "all". We cannot tell you how to route "all" spooled files for a user to a specific *OUTQ because we don't know the programming that is on your system. We can only tell you how to set a user's "default" *OUTQ. A job can include programming that routes spooled files to any *OUTQ on the system regardless of the user's "default" *OUTQ. Keep in mind that it is only the "default". If an *OUTQ is explicitly set in a job, then the "default" is ignored. For example, payroll checks might be set to print only through OUTQ(PAYROLL) on printer device PAYROLL. The user's "default" will have no effect. The checks are going to print on printer PAYROLL. OldSysAdmin's comment mostly describes the hierarchy. So, if you have a specific case where you changed a user's default, and spooled output went to a different *OUTQ, please describe those circumstances. Tell us about the job that created the spooled file. Tell us about the attributes of the spooled file. Perhaps we can begin to explain what happened. Tom
