How to setup zebra print spooler to hold labels to print at a later time.  Need to spool out about 500 labels but only print about 200 of them but leave the others to print later without having to go into the software to recreate the labels and send back to the print spooler.

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

Create or use an OUTQ that does not have a printer attached (eg. ZEBRA).
Direct the spool files to the “Working” OUTQ when needed.

WRKOUTQ ZEBRA*
<Enter>
Place a 2 “Change” on all of the spool files you want to print
On the command line tell them where you want them to go “OUTQ(QUSRSYS/ZEBRALIVE)”
<Enter>

Or you could create a program to move the labels for you in blocks of 200. That way you do not have to manually move each label.

Life is better.. ;-)

    You could create the spool file with HOLD(*YES) and SAVE(*YES). If your configuration supports it, before releasing the spool file change the page range to the first 200 labels. Of course, this assumes that each label is a page. When you want to print the remaining labels change the page range PAGERANGE(201 *END) and release the spool file again. I say "If your configuration supports it" because sometimes a printer is configured with only an output queue and no DEVD. In this case, a special value is required in the OUTQ description to get the system to recognize page range printing.
