I need to put on HOLD status all reports printed to OUTQ for selected AS400 users. Is there the way to make change for certain user in his User Profile or Job description for all reports he runs from AS400 be HOLDED in his outq. And after releasing them (option 6) print on his default printer. Thank you for the answers.

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

Hi,

I don’t think there’s a way to set all output for a user to be held as a default. What you could do is change the user to use an OUTQ that is always held and then let the user transfer their prints using option 2 to the correct OUTQ or printer.

Regards,

Martin Gilbert.

    Thank you Gilbert for the answer. But my user doesn't want to use option 2. He wants to do it exactly like he did in his previous job. He is new user and he wants just go to his outq, put 6 (release) on any report. And report will be printed automatically on user's default printer. Basically, I need to OVRPRTF for his default printer with HOLD status. But all reports he runs should go first to his OUTQ. And then he will release them to printer when he needs them. Do you have recomendations how to do it better? Best regards, Natasha.

    Question. What did he do in his "old" job - or more specifically, did he use some specific software package? It is possible that his previous work location used software that allowed custom setup of printed reports by user - or maybe all of the printed reports were set up with an override to hold. If that is the case you either have to make changes to accomodate this user or tell him he just need to use option #2. Regards Mike

    For reports which are run -- interactively -- : In the user's initial program, you could add an OVRPRTF FILE(*PRTF) HOLD(*YES)
