I mailed Chad privately the code to duplicate a spooled file using the
spooled file APIs.  If anyone else wants the code, let me know.

Stone,

    Hi, This is Chad, I was the originator of the question. Duplicating the
spool
file would be fine in this application as well. How would I go about doing
that
on a mass scale. We have numerous programmers who constantly save useful
info in
there spool file. If I could just duplicate them to a file somewhere other
than
their actual spool file I think we may be safe. Any hintss as to how I may
go
about doing this?
Thanks,
Chad
