Use the TAATOOL command RTVSPLFA.  This command  uses the spooled file name and
job as input.  This command was in the freeware and the licensed tools from Jim
Sloan's new TAATOOL.  It tell you form type, output priority, number of copies
left, total number of copies, maximum records, file separators, schedule, hold
file, save after output, device type, printer type, device file, user data,
accounting code, program which opened file, open date, open time, page being
written, total pages, record length, page width, lines per inch, cpi, overflow
line, fold print line, control character, replace unprintable character, align
forms, print quality, form feed, drawer, printer font, page rotation,
justification etc.

Of course, you can put the outq contents in a file and run a loop to use the
RTVSPLFA.   The TAATOOL which does this is CVTOUTQ.

I use this just for the purpose you mentioned.

Thank You.
