TITLE: ... Controlling Printing of Banner Pages on LPR Printers

Controlling Printing of Banner Pages on LPR Printers

NOTE: This procedure can be used at releases R310, R320, R360 to control the
printing of banner pages. R370 and above has added a parameter to CRTOUTQ or
CHGOUTQ to facilitate the printing or non-printing of banner pages. The
parameter is 'Print separator page'.

Create data area QTMPLPR of type *CHAR in library QTCP. Specify an authority
of *USE to prevent normal users from changing the data area. On the OS/400
command line, type the following:


The option to omit the separator page request is turned on or off based on
the value of the first character in the data area. If this character is a
capital N, the option is enabled. If it is any other character, the option
is disabled. If the data area does not exist, the option is disabled.

To enable (not have a banner page), on the OS/400 command line type the


To disable (to print a banner page):


Hope this helps
