When you do a SNDNETSPLF, and you want to retain the # of 
copies (and some other stuff), change the parameter DTAFMT to 
*ALLDATA.

I couldn't think why that wouldn't work so I just tested a SNDNETSPLF
naming myself in the list twice, and received two copies of the same
report.  Of course, that was sending from/to the same AS/400.  However,
when you send to a different system you only receive one copy.  This is
probably due to the fact that no matter how many diferent users you send to
on a remote system, SNADS sends only one copy, and then distributes it to
multiple users on the remote system.  That's real handy if sending a 2500
page report to 15 users on a remote system via a 2400bps SDLC dial-up
connection, but it does appear that when the remote system does the
distribution it eliminates the multiple entries for the same user.
Simple solution is to do the SNDNETSPLF to two distribution lists.  First
one naming all recipients, second one naming only those who are to receive
a second copy.

Subject:  distribution lists




I am trying to get two copies of a generated spool file to print to a
particular printer.  In the past i believe that we have put the desired
report on a selected distribution list entry twice.  I just tried to do
this manually and i get the message the it has been sent to 2 users but
only one shows up.  Anybody have any idea how else I might be able to get
two copies to print without changing the print file itself to two copies
because this report also goes to other printers that require only one copy.
Any help on this will be much appreciated
Thank You
Michael F. Connelly
