Hi Sally,
The command CHGSPLFA works fine ,
The printer is accepting only certain drawer number , it jumps from drawer to drawer as I change the spool file to different drawer and there are five of them .
I am not sure whats the logic behind it ...
Thanks for your input.

Avi, have you checked the writer to see if there is a "load formtype" or "verify alignment" message pending?  Have been thru same w/ remote writers.  If not waiting on a message, try ending the writer, power off/power on, restart writer.
As to drawer, am not sure about that, but would think you can do CHGSPLFA....

I have a IBM printer type InfoPrint attached to the net
and configured as an remoute outq on the AS/400
with setting of *IBM4332 and outq name 'TEXT'
Ping to printer is ok but if I print the spool file it goes
into SND and evaporates but nothing comes out on the printer .
Second to direct the output to a specific tray is it enough to
do chgsplfa to the drawer I want or do I have to OVRPRTF in
the program that produces the spool file , There are five trayes
