Thanks that looks like what we might have to do. I was hoping I could find a
solution without programming.

        I tried this a few releases back and had the same issue as your
describing.
        My work around was to have the print image on the UNIX system turned
into a
        flat file and named as the desired file name and FTPed over to the
AS/400
        and then we wrote a program on the 400 to turn it back into a
spoolfile with
        the desired spoolfile attributes.   For comparison use the
SNDTCPSPLF
        command between two AS/400s and change the DESTTYP and TRANSFORM
parms to
        different values and notice how on the target system different
filenames
        appear on the attributes depending on the selected values, similar
to an
        Unix system sending to an AS/400.

        Subject: LPR/LPD losing filename


                I've got a customer with and HP box using a product called
        TRANSPOOLER to send files down to the AS/400 via LPR/LPD.  The HP
box does
        not have LPR built into the OS that's what the transpooler product
does.  On
        the AS/400 the spool files appear in an outqueue with the following
        attributes :

                FILENAME        USERDATA
                LPD4983 GULPB3
                LPD4986F         GULPB3
                LPDC707         GULPB3
                .
                .
                .

                The userdata contains the name of the file coming from the
HP box.
        The filename is what we are interested in seeing and archiving.  Is
there
        any way to retain the userdata without the AS/400 LPR/LPD changing
the
        filename to a generic name?

                Can anyone point me in the right direction?

        Thanks in Advance,
