Skip,


I could be wrong, but I don't believe you can change the actual printer file name after it's generated - do a CHGSPLFA for a specific print file on an outq and you'll see what I mean.  (You can also just put a '2' in front of a print file on an outq.)

I've successfully pulled print files off an outq using USRDTA or FORMTYPE for identification, but I had those fields identified when they were generated or immediately afterwards within the CL (passed parms).  That approach requires source code.

I think you'll have to write a CL to pull using filename AM64MRPx or whatever formtype you have your POs saved as, and write something to read the spool file itself and get the PO# from within the file, then do an CHGSPLFA and load the PO# in USRDTA (accessible with a CL), then manipulate it after that. 


It'd be a lot easier if you had the source for AM64M, you could issue the change within there to plug the PO# into USRDTA within the program.  Can't your affiliate get you just that source?  I'd think the charge would be worth the amount of time you'll spend doing it the hard way.

Yes, I can change the name, I need to perform the printer override before the print. so need to control the printing and this could be printing the PO a second time, to a different outq, which is OK.

I do not have source code.

Skip,


You can't just use the USRDTA for that?  It has to be the actual printer file name?

Re; Printing POs



We are at 7.7 and use integrator for all Purchasing entry & printing.



Is there a program (CL ) that can be called, out side of MAPICS, from
with a cl, passed the PO# and print the PO.



Or and exit program to be launched after the PO has Printed.



What I want to do is override the printer file with the name of the PO
included then copy to IFS and attach to PO record.



The only problem I have is to override the spool file name when it
prints.
