Thanks for the advice.  I do not want to be the new S36 guy that wrecks
the AS400.  Won't be too good.

The fact that you can do WRKOUTQ and select 1 line that represents a
potentially massive spool file tells this EX-S36'er (Thank God) that
there is something about the entry on the outq that more or less maps to
the spool file, and the speed that the system brings up OUTQ information
leads me to believe that it is in a condensed format somewhere other
than spread out over the PF file that holds all the PF members that
represent the spooled data (If you do a DSPFD *MBRLIST on the QSPL file
that holds the spool file members ... it takes quite a long time to
present the information to you.. alot longer that WRKOUTQ *ALL does.   
I have duplicated this anyway using the excellent TAATOOL, CVTWRKSPLF
and Jeff Veltry's GETSPLF & PUTSPLF in order to perform a nightly save
of all OUTQ contents.

Thanks to all you very helpful and invaluable people on the Midrange-L
You are all a treasure trove.
