- I would delare 2 PRTF in the RPG program.
- In the calling CLP, i would use the instruction OVRPRTF to use the
same printer file twice and to direct the 2 outputs to the correct outq.
- Doing so, you would have to renamed the record format of the second
printer file in the RPG program(RPG dont allow duplicate record format
name)
- You must remember to do an OVRPRTF of the second printer file before
compiling the RPG (so the copmpiler can find a PRTF object)
- In the RPG you would issu a WRITE command to either or both PRTF
depending on a parameter passed to the program.

I hope this help, if it is not clear enought, i can go in more detail
