Check out NEWS/400, July, 1993.  In the Tech Corner, on page 164, is an article 
about re-directing spooled files to a different OUTQ.  It involves a DTAQ 
attached to an OUTQ.  Although the article does not do exactly what you are 
looking for, it may be possible.  The idea is to send "all" spool files to an 
OUTQ which is not attached to a printer.  As each spool file arrives in the 
OUTQ, a DTAQ entry is written to the attached DTAQ.  A program running in the 
background uses QRCVDTAQ to read these entries.  If the number of pages is 
included in the data queue entry, then you can send all spool files with <800 
pages to an OUTQ which is attached to a printer, leaving the "biggies" in the 
original OUTQ for you to handle manually.

Hope this helps.

Does anyone know of a way to monitor the contents of an outq? 
Basically, I want the system to HOLD all 800+ page spool files from
automatically printing.

TIA,
