My memory is a little fuzzy, but I think this is the same thing that happens
to us on occasion (I think I've seen it about 5 or 6 times in the last two
years across our 60 or so remote outqs).  The first time it happened I THINK
ibm told me it was the result of the printer dropping it's connection.
Don't take me at my word, my memory is a little fuzzy... all I know is it
wasn't an application issue.

Hope that helps.

There are NO twinax attached printers. Funny thing, it prints just fine the
majority of the time. For
both my file and all others. Some days the problem will not appear, other
days it might pop up three
or four times.

This client does have support from IBM, so they are not on a per-call basis.
Manager just doesn't want
to call. believes that since I wrote the program, I should fix it. Of couse,
if they would set
SAVE(*YES) on the spool file that caused the problem, I might have a clue to
go on, but so far they
haven't been able to find the time to do that.
