I have checked the archives and found some items relating to accessing 
     another job's qtemp files.  The problem is that they are a little over 
     my head - I am completely new to this area.
     
     The situation is this: for whatever reasons, misguided or otherwise, 
     we use QTEMP files heavily in batch processes.  Some of these batch 
     jobs are started by ROBOT software.  Our security is setup so that 
     programmers can not even see the job log of a ROBOT job.  There are 
     times when there is no one around with *ALLOBJ authority and when a 
     job starts to loop, we have no way to recover the data from QTEMP 
     before ending the job.  Management is unlikely to come up with a 
     solution to resolve the problem, especially if the solution involves 
     assigning *ALLOBJ authority to any programmer. 
     
     What I want to do, and I assume it is possible from what I have read, 
     is create an object that will allow us the specify the qualified job 
     and perhaps the file names in question, and either CRTDUPOBJ or 
     display the file contents from QTEMP so that we can safely end the job 
     without losing the interim data - something that we can call when we 
     need it.  Can this be done without adopting *ALLOBJ authority?   We 
     don't want to have to go back and modify every program that stores 
     data in QTEMP files. 
     
     Could someone give me some direction on how I can do this or point me 
     to a primer so that I can understand more of what I am reading in the 
     archives about accessing another job's QTEMP files?
     
     thanks much
