Hi Loyd,

What do you need it to do? You could use two printer files in the program
with OVRPRTF to make them use the same external printer file. The trick with
that is you need the OVRPRTF in effect when you compile, or you need to
duplicate the printer file. Or you could use one printer file and close/open
it to produce separate spool files for the pick list and packaging list.
