Has anyone ever had an instance where a spool file, that was generated from
a *SCS print file is converted by the system to a device type of *AFPDS?

I have a customer who runs a invoice print program that does this, yet if I
run it, it stays a *SCS device type.

Here are some of the attributes from the two different print files:

Strange, eh.

Thanks!
