One way to try to print the contents of that physical file is a simple CPYF OUTPUT(*PRINT). You'll probably notice a loss of all formatting. Another thing you'll notice is that blank lines are gone. There are other options on the CPYSPLF which will store the SKIP's and SPACE information at the far left of the records. But then you'll have to write something to reformat that. Again, if you are using overlays or anything, you may find this less than desirable. One radical idea is to set up Domino on that 400. Then set up a mail user and use one of the many utilities out there - like IBM's infoprint server, to email that user the spool file as an attachment. The better ones will retain the overlays, etc. You can call this your spool file archive.
