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

Hi,

Maybe you could create a small CL program to run a CHGSPLFA for all the user’s spooled files, or run a OVRPRTF when the user signs on.

Regards,

Martin Gilbert.

    Special authority *SPLCTL is not required to choose a printer. *SPLCTL allows users to control any spooled file, even those that belong to other users. Users can always control their own spooled files. If you don't want users to SAVE() their own spooled files, you need to remove all access through system interfaces to spooled files from those users. E.g., you need to remove access to the WRKSPLF display, the CHGSPLFA command and to any other path such as WRKJOB where spooled files are listed. If users still need to manage their spooled files, you'll need to create programming that locates, lists and manages spooled files using only the management elements that you provide. Not a trivial task. Since users own the reports, why would you even consider restricting SAVE(*YES)? (Perhaps because a boss told you to do it.) If too many spooled files collect on the system, then institute an aging function that cleans old ones out. Tom
