RE: Automation.



fixed

I agree that you can search on GOOGLE and you could get some free ideas about how to do this. You may use APIs or other little tricks like:

a) WRKSPLF SELECT(*CURRENT) OUTPUT(*PRINT)
b) CPYSPLF FILE(QPRTSPLF) TOFILE(MYLIBRARY/MYFILE) JOB(JOBNO/JOBUSRID/JOBNAME)
c) With a program you can read the spooled file created on step "a".
d) The report has spooled file name, job name, job user id, file number and job number, as well as the creation date and time. So, you can
1) Calculate - in the program - what is 30 days in the past and based on that
2) Call a 2nd program and send the required parameters - maybe use the DLTSPLF command (DLTSPLF FILE(SPOOLFILE) JOB(JOBNO/JOBUSRID/JOBNAME) SPLNBR(FILENO))
e) You can run the program on step "c" until EOF is reached.

Some coding is required but I do not believe is impossible. However, if I can "invoke the *SPENDMONEY command" it will be awesome to have the TAATOOLS in your shop.

Just a suggestion.

Good luck!
