Scotty,
  The DESTOPT field is SUPPOSED to be able to control the FILTER
options on your VSE system(according to AS/400 tech support folks).
I have been unable to get them to function.

On the MVS system, the FILTER options mean the following:

f     Print as a sequence of lines

l     Print, passing through all control characters

p    Print with pagination

r    Print, interpreting the first column as
      carriage control

If you are able to get the FILTER options to work, please let know how
you accomplished the task!
