No - it is not sysval QPRTDEV (well, not exactly..).
The InfoCenter has a page on

which has this text:
The system value Default printer (QPRTDEV). If the printer identified in the
system value does not exist, the output goes to the QPRINT output queue.
On this particular system (which I cannot freely change), the QPRTDEV = PRT08
and an outq exists, BUT NO DEVICE of same name...
but it is only when an override printer file is to a non-existent queue (not
device..) and the RPGLE executes & writes to the spool, that the CPD3322 appears
in the log to indicate spool was placed in QPRINT (and my original problem was
that it went to the QGPL/QPRINT and not the QUSRSYS/QPRINT higher in libl (spent
a while looking in wrong outq..)

Have coded a solution which works with the forms tool (checking existence of
queue name and if not found, referencing qgpl/qprint). I would need own system
to determine exactly when this does or does not occur in various scenarios.

the default output queue can be set by some initial value. It is not in the
SYSVAL list, but it is in a maintennace screen, where you could set some
basic values for the operating system.

I am not near a machine, and it is many moons ago I have looked at that

So, if you change that value that will also be shown in the message.

I know that IBM will issue a CPD3322 when a RPG executes and the printer
outq does not exist, and the CPD332 says outq is changed to QPRINT.

It appears on our current system it is always QGPL/QPRINT even though for
whatever reason we have a QUSRSYS/QPRINT higher in library list, plus the
QGPL/QPRINT lower in libl.

I checked another more basic system and see the QUSRSYS/QPRINT is not
there (and it's a default install).

We have to pass the spool file outq & lib to a "forms product" and it
won't deal with "*LIBL" (blows up).

Can anyone confirm that CPD3322 has & always will be QGPL/QPRINT?
